Under the Influence

People are strange and sometimes their behavior can be even stranger when under the influence… At one point or another, we’ve all experienced the myriad of ways people can act when they’ve had just a little too much to drink. Some are mean, some are sorrowful, others are clever, funny and generous, while others simply love their life and are the life of the party. Still, there are others out there in the universe that we can’t really seem to classify… As an example, I stumbled across this in my morning Feeds:

Man uses beer to entice alleged burglar to leave

BAR HARBOR, Maine (AP) – Police said a homeowner in Maine used a beer to entice an intoxicated intruder to leave. The intruder apparently didn’t realize that it was a nonalcoholic beer. Bar Harbor police said the homeowner awoke early Monday to find 22-year-old Scott Cote in the bedroom and used the beer to convince him to carry on.

Police said they found Cote breaking into cars a short time later and arrested him after he fled into some woods.

Police arrested Cote on charges of burglary, criminal mischief, operating a motor vehicle after revocation and violating the conditions of release.

Cote was returned to the Hancock County Jail after an initial appearance in court Tuesday. No lawyer has been assigned to represent him.
