Chased by cops, guy throws empty beer keg from car

You know you’ve had too much when: Throwing a drained keg out the window of your vehicle seems like a good way to improve the situation whilst being chased by police. But that’s what twenty-one year-old Kevin Schleicher did in Cassel, Wisconsin. He was arrested on a charge of recklessly endangering safety for tossing the giant barrel out the window during a three-mile car chase that reached speeds of up to 120mph. 

A sheriff's deputy attempted to stop the car full of young lads for defective rear lights and erratic driving at about 3:30 am, but it didn’t work. When the dust (and keg) had settled, the driver, Kolton Kafka, 19, was arrested on charges of first-offense drunken driving and knowingly fleeing an officer. Two other passengers, Benjamin Theisen, 20, and Micah Ehrike, 18, were cited for underage drinking. Kafka and Schleicher are going to stay in jail until court Tuesday. (1)
