Dumb Criminals: Thief Makes Beer Run While On Pursuit From Cops After Burglarizing House
Stopping to steal beer while running away from cops may sound silly, but this is South Florida.
The illegal beer run occurred early Sunday morning after a burglary suspect was allegedly caught in the middle of looting a Lighthouse Point home and trashing it with mustard and illegible scribblings, police said.
The police chase ended with Andrew Fatzinger, 21, of Port St. Lucie, taken to a hospital after tussling with a police K-9, authorities said.
The bizarre string of incidents began about 2 a.m. Sunday when a neighbor called police to report seeing a man climbing up to the second floor of a townhouse in the 1900 block of Northeast 32nd Street. The neighbor said he could hear things breaking and items being slammed to the floor, according to a Lighthouse Police arrest report.
