Locked in a gas station beer cooler, a Wisconsin man stayed the night and had a few drinks

What would you do if you found yourself locked in a gas station cooler full of beer?

Most people would do one of three things, or maybe a combination of them all. Yell. Bang on the door. Try to break out. Anything to get the attention of an employee so they could get out and go about their business.

A 38-year-old man in Marshfield, Wisconsin, had a different idea. He decided to just stay in the cooler. All night. And have a few drinks while he was there.

A night in a beer cooler

According to the Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune, the man went to his local Kwik Trip gas station late Tuesday night to get some beer.

He entered the walk-in cooler, and was apparently still in there when it was locked at about 11:50 p.m.

Instead of making a big fuss out of it, the man accepted his fate and spent the night in the cooler, which stays at a temperature of a chilly 32 degrees.

During his stay, he enjoyed an 18-ounce bottle of beer and three cans of malt beverage. He may have had more to drink than he could handle, because at some point he fell over a stack of 30-can cases of beer, breaking several of them.

The next morning

The cooler had a glass door, and the gas station wasn’t yet closed. So it’s very likely that if he had wanted to get out, he could have gotten someone’s attention.

Employees discovered him inside the cooler just before 6 a.m., and opened the door for him.

The man left without paying for the beer he drank or the cases he broke. So, police cited him for retail theft.

That ticket is probably a lot more expensive than a six-pack.
