A man accused of stealing beer insisted on drinking the last of his loot before being handcuffed.

David Philip Miller, 49, of the 6300 block of Radio Road, East Naples, was arrested by Collier County sheriff’s deputies Monday.

Employees of the Circle K on Radio Road said they saw Miller walk out with an 18-pack of Busch beer. He then rode off on a brown bike, reports stated.

Deputies found Miller hiding behind a tree farther down Radio Road, drinking a can of the spoils. Miller refused to set the 12-ounce beer down, and instead chugging the last of it before showing the deputy his hands, reports said.

Miller had the 18-pack stashed away in his bike basket, reports show.

Miller was booked and faces charges of petty theft of less than $100. The case cost $18.99.

Finally--an important news story on the online front page--one that will stir up a interesting exchange of meaningful input--like about the price of beer.

Yeah, he can always say that the high beer prices are Busch's fault.

Surprised they didn't charge him with evidence tampering.

My money says the cops are finishing off the rest of it right now.

Naples Daily, what`s the point of posting this article? Is it so we can all laugh at this man and his alcoholism. Is it to make your readers feel good about themselves. For all we know this guy could be a military veteran. I just don`t see the point of this article other than to ridicule him.

Would it make you feel better if they find out he's a serial axe murderer?
