A man who got trapped in a convenience store cooler overnight started drinking, a decision that ultimately landed him behind bars
He stopped into a Kwik Trip store to buy beer just before the 12 a.m. cutoff for alcohol sales. When he went into the store’s cooler to retrieve his beverage of choice, however, the door closed behind him and the clock struck midnight, locking him in so he proceeded to drink three cans of Four Loko and an 18-ounce can of Icehouse beer.

While the man may have been living it up while locked in the cooler, he wasn’t actually trapped. The store is open 24 hours a day and police say he just needed to knock on the cooler’s glass door to get the attention of an attendant.
Six hours after he entered the cooler, he was found by another customer.
Employees opened the door and say the man left without paying for his drinks. Staff at the store also say the man toppled and damaged three 30-packs of beer.
The man tried to run but was eventually arrested and charged with retail theft. He also violated a probation hold that required him to stay sober.
