Is This The Worst Possible Way To Show Up To Your DWI Hearing?

Keith Gruber is a New York resident that was arrested on December 27th for a DWI. Yesterday was his hearing for the DWI, and he showed up to court an hour and a half late, drunk, holding an open can of Busch beer, and carrying a bag that contained four more cans of Busch.

Don't believe me? Here's proof from RecordOnline.Com:

A Swan Lake man facing a felony driving-while -intoxicated charge showed up at Sullivan County Court on Monday with a bag full of beer — and was promptly thrown in jail without bail, officials said.

Keith Gruber, 49, had a scheduled 10:30 a.m. pretrial hearing.

Gruber came to court about an hour and a half late carrying a black bag that contained four cans of Busch beer, authorities said. He also was carrying an open can and was obviously drunk, officials said.


LaBuda asked Gruber if he enjoyed his "liquid lunch." Gruber indicated he did and said he was sorry.

"It was obvious he was intoxicated," LaBuda said.

Gruber, who has prior DWI convictions, was arrested Dec. 27 in the town of Liberty and was out on $30,000 cash bail.

LaBuda put Gruber in jail with no bail.

Man, that's a new one. The judge(LaBuda) had to be happy. I mean, you walk in for a hearing about your alleged drunk driving, and you're drunk while carrying more beer... pretty easy for the judge to decide what to do.

But what's Gruber thinking? Was he just like, "Fuck it, I'm going to jail and might as well go out on top"? If so, you've gotta roll in with something better than Busch.
