BYOB: Shorewood Man Brings His Own Beer to Local Bar
A roundup of the latest from the Shorewood police reports.
Bar patrons typically look to the bartenders at their local tavern to supply them with a drink on a night out, but on Tuesday a 63-year-old Shorewood man took his beverage needs into his own hands.
Shorewood's American Legion Hall, 4121 N. Wilson Dr., phoned Shorewood police after the man brought his own beer and grabbed a seat on the bar's patio at 4:51 p.m.
Police say a week earlier, he was asked to leave the legion post after being involved in a fight.
The man received a warning from police.
