KMOV Channel 4's Matt Sczesny scored
a good one last night:
On Saturday evening between 8:30 and 11 p.m., the cops in Belleville, Illinois, got multiple calls from a certain 36-year-old Shannon White
She was a little tipsy.
But wanted to be tipsier!
And dagnabbit, her....man -- boyfriend? husband? -- had taken away her beer.
He was apparently unhappy that his dog was missing.
(Man, this is a depressing blog post to write.)
We did enjoy police head honco Don Sax
's reminder to citizens that 911 is not
"It's not designed for people to call and complain that they can't get their beer or are unhappy with a particular situation," said Sax.
Well, right. Unless that "situation" involves, like, homicide.
But beer, no. In that case, don't get the authorities involved.
