This is Called "Kicking the Tires" in Wisconsin

Permit me to rearrange this story from Wisconsin to give it maximum Wisconsiness:

"Benjamin Tatzel, 45, of La Crosse, registered a preliminary breath-test reading of 0.39 percent Monday afternoon, police said. That's nearly five times the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle.

Police gave Tatzel a public intoxication warning, meaning he can either pay a $240 fine or attend a two-hour sobriety class, police said."

Here's the kicker:

"[Talzel, a] liver transplant recipient was cited for being falling-down drunk on a street in La Crosse, Wis., police said Wednesday."

People, whether you have a new liver or not, .39 percent is awfully fucking drunk. On a new liver, on which you are not supposed to be any unnecessary strains, .39 is way, way too high.

Something told me you would write about this. Had it been a trivia question, I'd have 501 Club bar swag this morning.

I like the fact that this occurred on a Monday afternoon.

I think he must of had a hard time teling the police his name. Benjamin Tatzel is difficult to pronounce when your intoxicated. I should say uber-intoxicated.
