Drunk Man Walking

By Wyatt Earp | March 22, 2010

Here’s a question for the audience. If you were wanted for bank robbery, would you walk out of a hospital with an IV in your arm, trek to the nearest bar, and sit down on a stool wearing only a gown?

If you answered no, consider yourself a normal, well-adjusted human being. If you answered yes, :

PITTSBURGH – A fugitive wanted for bank robbery in Michigan is in custody after police say he walked out of a Pittsburgh hospital and into a bar wearing only his hospital gown, with an intravenous needle still his arm.

Authorities say police were called to JR’s Bar Friday night after 20-year-old Elbert Lewis Thompson II walked in from Allegheny General Hospital. Thompson was taken into custody a short time later.

I wonder if the barkeep poured him a pint or just ran a line from the keg to his IV?

    How did he expect to get served? He’s only 20 years old, and surely he didn’t have ID tucked in the gown.

    Did they tack on an indecent exposure charge for flashing his butt crack though the opening in the back of the gown?

    Candy’s dandy but liquor is quicker. Probably looking for a different form of pain killer.

    Since bartenders love to offer advice to patrons, maybe he was looking for a second opinion?

    Wagonsux – He could have tucked it into his . . . ew.

    John D – They certainly should have.

    MeToo – I found that whiskey works rather well.

    Jon – Maybe this is a new provision of ObamaCare?
