Man Arrested After Getting Locked in Beer Cooler

Jeremy Van Ert

Believing he was locked in the cooler for the night, Van Ert chose to make the most of his situation.

A man who found himself trapped inside a convenience store's beer cooler when it automatically closed and locked after selling time helped himself to some of the product, police said.

According to Milwaukee ABC affiliate WISN, Jeremy Van Ert was locked inside the walk-in cooler at Kwik Trip in Marshfield around 11:50 p.m, and although the temperature was unbearable - 32 degrees Fahrenheit - the 38-year-old made a decision to not yell for help.

Van Ert was freed when a customer noticed him in the cooler around 5:50am Wednesday.

"The subject found himself locked in the beer cooler, knew that Kwik Trip would not sell him any beer, so he made a decision to remain in the beer cooler", Marshfield Police Chief Rick Gramza said. The store is open 24 hours a day and police say Van Ert just needed to knock on the cooler's glass door to get the attention of an attendant.

Hinch: "There Was No Altercation"
TMZ reported earlier Thursday that police were called to the Astros' Los Angeles-area hotel after Game 1 on Tuesday. Sources close to the situation say that Hinch "snapped" and cursed out the guest in the middle of the hotel bar.

Police cited the man for retail theft.

When police caught up with Van Ert, he was arrested for violating his parole for a previous felony conviction, Gramza said.

He also fell on top of a stack of Busch Light Cans, WISN reported. So, we made a decision to remain in the beer cooler.

"This is unique, I've been here 20 years".

Kwik Trip told police that they are reviewing their security options.
