In an act of athletic prowess, a 19-year-old held on to his half-consumed 20-ounce beer with his left hand while simultaneously bending over and throwing up on the sidewalk in the area of East Central Avenue and 4th Street.
He said he had acid reflux and when he drank the beer, it made him vomit. It appeared he didn’t spill a drop, even though it was 4:20 a.m., when most people are asleep, or at least drowsy.
The youth’s story was he had just left an argument with his girlfriend and was on his way to the police department to turn himself in for underage consumption.
He said he wanted to go to jail since he had no place else to go, but police called his mother, who picked him up, upsetting him. He really wanted to go to jail — likely afraid of his mother’s wrath.
