  • Man gets locked in a beer cooler overnight and helps himself to drinks... but is jailed in the morning for violating his probation sober order

A Marshfield man is behind bars after police say he was locked inside a beer cooler at a convenience store, had several drinks, and then fled.

Police later arrested Van Ert, who was issued a misdemeanor citation for walking out on his bar tab.

Authorities said Van Ert walked inside the Marshfield Kwik Trip on Central Avenue on Tuesday night, before midnight.

The man, whose name was not released, told police that he went to a Kwik Trip here to buy some beer but became trapped inside the walk-in cooler when it was locked at about 11:50 p.m. Tuesday, according to a police report.

Believing he was locked in the cooler for the night, Van Ert decided to make the most of his situation. The store is open 24 hours, so Van Ert would only have had to knock on the glass to be rescued by an employee.

When he was out, he didn't pay for the alcohol he had consumed.

Police said Van Ert was let out around 6 a.m. when another customer noticed him inside the cooler. He also had fallen over a stack of 30-can beer packs, breaking three of the cases open.

Marshfield Police Chief Rick Gramza explain the situation to WAOW Newsline 9.

"This is unique, I've been here 20 years". The conditions of his parole in that case had required him to stay sober, WAOW reports.

Kwik Trip staff said they will now review their security procedures.
