Wisconsin Man Locked in Beer Cooler

A Wisconsin man turned a Kwik Trip into an all-nighter.

According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, an unidentified Marshfield, Wisconsin, man got locked inside a cooler at a local convenience store Tuesday night and rather than call for help, decided to stay and drink.

The manager of a Kwik Trip in Marshfield, reported the incident after the intrepid man was discovered at 6:13 a.m. on Wednesday. The 38-year-old man was locked in a beer cooler all night.

The man told police he went to Kwik Trip to buy beer and got stuck inside when the beer cooler was locked at about 11:50 p.m. Tuesday. The man said he decided he might as well just stay inside the cooler and drink the beer.

If the man had only knocked on the glass door employees would have heard him and let him out.

At about 5:50 a.m. Wednesday morning, a customer told Kwik Trip employees there was a man inside the cooler. When employees opened the door, the man left without paying for the beer.

The Kwik Trip manager told police the man drank an 18-ounce bottle of beer and three cans of a malt beverage. Apparently, he also fell over a stack of 30-can beer packs, breaking three of them open.

The man was issued a citation for retail theft.
