Whenever you're trying to shake the fuzz, I think we can all agree there's only one way to do it.
A couple of guys from Durant reminded me how brilliant the human mind truly is. They also remind all of us why alcohol and driving should not mix.
Late Tuesday, a Durant police officer was sent to a store on Main Street.
Video surveillance captured footage of a maroon pickup with a big dent on top of the tailgate outside the store, according to a report from the Durant Police Department. A man got out of the truck's passenger side, went into the store, picked up a 30-pack of Bud Light and walked out without paying. He hopped back into the truck, which fled.
Less than an hour later, that same police officer was patrolling the area when he spotted a maroon pickup with the same big dent on the tailgate, according to the police department. The officer turned around and the truck sped off.
So the chase began.
And as if the passengers in the truck weren't endangering enough people, they decided to throw full beer cans out the window, according to police. Some missed. Some hit, spraying foam all over the squad car windshield.
Turn evidence into weaponry. Genius. They're like little booze bombs â€” heavy, sturdy and only 3.2 percent alcohol by weight in the state of Oklahoma.
Which brings me to my first point, ladies and gentlemen: alcohol and driving should not mix.
Which brings me to the next point in the story: the truck crashed.
The passenger climbed out the window, carrying clothing and a Bud Light. But as we've just learned, this beer was attack beer â€” not drinking beer. When the officer got out of his car, the passenger chucked the beer at the policeman.
Thankfully, the passenger has terrible aim. No word on whether this was caused by drinking or genetics. The beer hit the car instead of the officer.
Police chased down the passenger and arrested the driver of the truck. The officers then found remains of a 30-pack of beer inside the truck, sitting there like a pile of live ammo.
Which brings me to my next point: maybe it's best not to get in a police chase in the first place. Then you can just drink the beer you have instead of throwing it.
