Not really earth-shattering news, I know, but this one is worth note.
HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what happened. Cops responded to a complaint that cars were blocking the street in a Wisconsin neighborhood. When they arrived they found all the hallmarks of a typical high-school kegger: cars lined up along the street, a keg in the house and even drinking games.
So, using their loudspeaker they announced that the cars blocking the street would soon be towed. Predictably this caused a lot of the partiers to come out of the house where the cops submitted them to breathalyzer tests. Everyone passed. Even after searching the house cops couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find even one whiff of demon liquor.
The party, the keg, even the drinking games were real. Even the beer was real except that it was root beer.
According to organizer Dustin Zero the party was cooked up to make fun of the local D.C. Everett school which had banned some players from the football team. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d been kicked off the team after pictures circulated showing them holding red plastic cups. The party demonstrated that drinking from red cups doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t necessary, or even remotely, prove underage drinking.
