Wisconsin man spends night drinking convenience store's beer cooler

Man locked in beer cooler cited for drinking

When the clock struck 12, the cooler closed and Van Ert was locked inside.

A man who got locked inside a convenience store beer cooler overnight didn't get bitter or hop back outside - he got busy instead, police said.

Marshfield Police Chief Rick Gramza told WAOW that Van Ert "knew that Kwik Trip would not sell him any beer, so he chose to remain in the beer cooler". A customer had noticed the 38-year-old man inside the cooler around 6 a.m., and when employees opened it, he fled.

According to the police report obtained by the Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune, employees would have let him out of the beer cooler if he had knocked on its glass door to let them know he was there.

Jeremy Van Ert, 38, was charged with retail theft and is behind bars on a probation hold, WBAY-TV reported.

When police caught up with Van Ert, he was arrested for violating his parole for a previous felony conviction, Gramza said. When he went into the store's cooler to retrieve his beverage of choice, the cooler door closed behind him, locking him in.

Van Ert reportedly consumed an 18-ounce bottle of Icehouse Beer and three cans of Four Loko, the police report said. He also had fallen over a stack of 30-can beer packs, breaking three of the cases open. So, we made a decision to remain in the beer cooler.

Kwik Trip told police that they are reviewing their security options.
