DUI Suspect Arrested in Bud Light Costume – The Irony is Strong


Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone goes ahead and raises the bar for absurdity. This time, it happened in Ottawa, Kansas, where a sheriff’s deputy encountered a rather peculiar scene – a man in a Bud Light costume taking a field sobriety test.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office couldn’t help but find humor in the situation and shared the incident on Facebook, using it as a tongue-in-cheek recruitment ad for law enforcement. Their post read, “A career in law enforcement is exciting, and you get to experience something new every day. Sometimes you see things you can’t believe!”

According to the post, deputies were notified of a possible intoxicated driver on Interstate 35. When they located the vehicle and pulled it over, they were surprised to find the driver dressed in a beer can costume. The dashcam photo shared in the post showed an officer observing the man, arms outstretched, wearing a shiny blue cylindrical outfit adorned with the Bud Light logo.

Unfortunately for the costumed driver, the sobriety test did not favor him. The department reported that he was arrested for driving under the influence and taken to Franklin County Jail. The post concluded with a reminder that “suspects are innocent until proven guilty.”

Facebook comments on the post showed little sympathy for the DUI suspects. One person remarked, “When you think you’ve seen it all,” while another joked, “Identifies as sober. Nothing to see here.” Some comments referenced the recent controversy surrounding Bud Light’s partnership with a transgender influencer, leading to plummeting sales after a resulting boycott.

Amidst the humorous commentary, some people expressed their gratitude to the sheriff’s department for keeping the community safe. One person commented, “Thank you guys for the laugh and for getting him off the street!”
