Video: The strangest, most illegal beer run, ever?

posted at 8:01 pm on February 18, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

I’d call it your palate cleanser for the evening, but this is just… so… what?! These two burglars inflict thousands of dollars worth of damages on a gas-station convenient store and risk 1. possibly killing or horribly maiming an innocent bystander(s); 2. possibly getting shot at by store patrons/employees in fear for their lives; 3. possibly totaling their own car; 4. probable jail time and fines if they got caught… all for one case of Bud Light? They didn’t even grab the Bud heavy, or at least a bag of donuts on the way out? Who was in charge of that cost-benefit analysis? Is this one of those insane things kooks do when they’re tripping on crystal meth?

“There’s something wrong with that.”

Certainly the vid will be included in the next Bud Light Super Bowl ad?

Smash and grabs like this are prevalent in N. St. Louis where the principle theft is of…

Didn’t even grab a pack of smokes

@BarackObama “We’re going to double your gas mileage by 2025,” says guy who doubled the price of gas since 2008

I think they learned their system from Obama. Destroy everything for the least of booty.

Meh, its Houston. The only place in the state that makes Lubbock look good.

That’s not a case, it’s a 12-pack. A half-case, of tasteless lite beer, and you needed to bust through the door (with a stolen car most likely). May they rot once they’re caught.

I really, REALLY want to see the interrogation tape when they catch ‘em.

I’m pretty sure that they’ll explain that they were just collecting their Obama beer since their Obama phone was so wonderful.

The jury having found you guilty on all counts, I hereby sentence you to six months for breaking and entering and sixty days for theft. I order you to make restitution in the amount of $5,000. Finally, I order you to be hanged by the neck until you are dead for your taste in beer.
Texas, baby.

Houston don’t count.

Better — “I order you to drink these beers until you wish you were dead”

Pretty cool. Though I don’t think they took into account team drivers.

Exceptional

DarkCurrent on February 18, 2014 at 8:46 PM

Did those guys grab from the “on sale” stack ??

rik on February 18, 2014 at 8:56 PM

Smells like a insurance scam to me.

oscarwilde on February 18, 2014 at 9:04 PM

My guess is that it was some sort of gang initiation prank. “Mijo, go steal a car, drive it through a gas station window and bring back a case of beer. Just one case. Go.”

America sure has fallen since “Smokey and the Bandit.”

Nailed it.

light beer live dangerous next time grab the regular stuff

gxbhkt on February 18, 2014 at 11:49 PM

Who was in charge of that cost-benefit analysis?

I don’t think there was analysis is the right word. The thought process was more like this:

“Want Beer. Beer there. Crash car and get beer.”

There Goes the Neighborhood on February 19, 2014 at 12:24 AM

2 guys went in, only 1 guy took beer while the other guy came out with nothing???

climbnjump on February 18, 2014 at 8:26 PM

They should be able to track them by their Obama phones, but then that’s more likely why they’ll not be caught. No time for a convenient store robbery when there are so many conservatives to monitor.

onomo on February 19, 2014 at 7:48 AM

If it turns out these guys escaped to Houston as a result of Hurricane Katrina (as much of New Orleans did), they’ll be able to use “it’s Bush’s fault” at their trial.
