America was founded by men who understood that the threat of domestic tyranny is as great as any threat from abroad. If we want to be worthy of their legacy, we must resist the rush toward ever-increasing state control of our society. Otherwise, our own government will become a greater threat to our freedoms than any foreign terrorist.” —Ron Paul Freedom vs. Security: A False Choice, 31 May 2004
Last Wednesday afternoon, 19 year-old men Andy Huynh, Nicholas Kalscheuer And Nicholas Fiumetto were on a mission to quench their thirst with some Tecate beer. There’s just two problems — they’re underage and they don’t want to pay for it.
Kalscheuer and Fiumetto entered the Baja Ranch Market about 3 p.m. Wednesday while Huynh remained behind the wheel of a car nearby.
Inside the store, Fiumetto grabbed a 30-pack of beer and the two men ran out. Employees ran after the pair into the parking lot, grabbing and detaining Kalscheuer and later turning him over to police, according to the report.
Flumetto ran through a nearby carwash and emerged through the other side, where police were waiting for him, notes the LA Times. The police took him into custody, wet and covered with soap bubbles. As for the getaway driver? He managed to escape, but the police convinced Huynh to turn himself in.
It hardly seems worth it for just a pack of beer, but at least they got some epic mugshots out of it!
