Wisconsin man gets locked in beer fridge, decides to start drinking

Yes, you read that right. We were going to go with a slightly more informative article this week but come on now, this sounds so ridiculous we had to double check to make sure it’s true! Plus, it’s Friday, so let’s have some fun!

Indeed, a 38-year-old man from Wisconsin, US, found himself locked in the beer fridge of the Kwik Trip convenience store. When questioned by police, the man said: “he just wanted beer.” Apparently, this didn’t fly too well as he was later charged with retail theft.

The man was let out of the fridge at 6am the following morning by another customer, after which he just walked straight out of the shop. According to USA Network, Wisconsin, the man told police he decided he might as well stay inside the cooler and drink the beer.

The cooler reportedly had a glass door and, had the man knocked, employees would have been alerted to his presence and he would have been easily released. Instead, however, he allegedly drank an 18-ounce bottle of beer and three cans of malt beverage as well as knocking over a stack of 30-can beer packs and breaking three of the cases open.

The man has also found himself met with various praise and/or comments from social media, with some Twitter users remarking that Kwik Trip should offer him a gift card, as well as install beds and potato chip dispensers in their coolers.

So, have any of you ever found yourself locked in a fridge? What do you think you would do in a similar scenario? Scream for help? Or settle down for the night and get drinking?
