Man brings beer to DWI hearing

Recommended Posts


A New York man is being held in jail after showing up an hour and a half late for a court hearing on a felony DWI charge — he was also drunk and carrying an open can of Busch beer, authorities say.

Keith Gruber, 49, is in Sullivan County Jail without bail. He was allegedly carrying four more beer cans in a bag when he went through the courthouse security check on Monday.

The Middletown Times Herald-Record reported that Gruber, from Swan Lake, appeared before Sullivan County Judge Frank LaBuda, who asked him if he enjoyed his "liquid lunch."

Gruber said he did, then said he was sorry. LaBuda sent him to jail with no bail.

"It was obvious that he was intoxicated," LaBuda said according to the Herald-Record.

Gruber, who has prior DWI convictions, was arrested on Dec. 27 in the town of Liberty and had been out on $30,000 cash bail before this week's unfortunate court appearance.

I think the biggest crime isn't that he went to jail...its that he went to jail for Bush Beer

I was with a buddy of mine who had a DUI in Roswell, the judge was pretty cool and they were reading the pre-court mumbo jumbo, the Judge was like please make sure all your affairs are in order like your paperwork, we had a woman who yesterday came in and dumped her whole purse out on the table and 2 marijuana ciggerettes came rolling out. As you can imagine her stay was a lot longer then she thought. :P

I just thought it was hilarious the judge was like don't be a idiot please. :P
