ODD: Milwaukee Cops Arrest Man Who Attacked Beer Truck
MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (AP) Milwaukee police arrested a 32-year-old man who smashed a truckload of beer with a metal pipe.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the attacker scolded the deliverymen Friday for bringing what he called poison into his neighborhood.
Police say several people took advantage of the deliveryman's distraction and stole beer from the truck.
The truck was going to the grocery store, Mid-Town. Police say the suspect approached the deliveryman and ordered him to stop the delivery, but he was ignored.
Owner Nirmal Singh says the man then beat the cases of canned beer for about a half hour. He says when the suspect got tired he sat against a wall and waited for police.
Singh estimated the product loss at about $2,000.
