From The Bar Stool: Meet The Dumb Stupid Drunk Baby Stroller Pusher Guy!
I'm no stranger to weird nights drinking at various Grand Rapids establishments and I hear a ton of messed up crap! This is one of those tales. It's another edition of From the Bar Stool. Did you know you can be arrested for drunk stroller pushing? Hell yes you can, cops will cuff your butt and toss you in the joint without thinking twice! It happened to a West Virginia guy recently.
While slaughtering beers this weekend a chick I know told me about a 35 year old dude who was watching Nascar at his house and killing a few beers, but he ran out of beers about halfway thru the race so he decided to just walk two blocks down the street to the liquor store and pick up some more.
After all, he had been drinking so he decided walking was way better than driving. So he loads his 4 year old kid up in the stroller, and they head down the street. I mean, you can't leave the 4 year old home alone right? And the guy was trying to do the right thing by not driving, but when he got to the liquor store apparently the clerk thought he was too drunk to be buying more beer, but he sold him a 12 pack anyway and then called the cops.
Cops showed up and arrested him a couple minutes later, and charged him with drunk stroller pushing! Actually, it was child neglect, pushing the stroller drunk. And when I first heard this story, I thought, man what a load of crap that is!
But now that the more I think about it, I guess its probably not a good idea to be pushing your kid in a stroller when your drunk. You know, with all the cars on the street and stuff. You just don't hear about guys getting arrested for drunk stroller pushing every day do ya? But it happened to this guy.
