Wisconsin Man Slams 10 Beers, Burglarizes Brewers’ Clubhouse
Pop quiz, hotshots:
You pour ten beers down your throat at a sporting event and end up passed out, face-down in the bushes outside the stadium. Upon awakening, do you...
- Stagger into the parking lot, call an Uber, and go home to sleep it off

- Find yourself some cheese and brats, immediately
- Pull yourself to your feet and immediately break in to the now-empty stadium, looking for cool stuff and memorabilia to steal

Two game jerseys and a bag with baseballs and pitching devices were taken from the coaches’ locker room, according to the complaint.
