Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - LOCAL - As­so­ci­ated Press

A Trea­sure Coast man asked the store clerk, “What would hap­pen if I stole some beer?”

Po­lice say Christo­pher Maxwell soon found out.

Se­bas­tian po­lice told TCPalm.com the 33-year-old Maxwell en­tered a con­ve­nience store at 2:30 a.m. Fri­day but was told he couldn’t buy beer be­cause al­co­hol sales are banned in the city be­tween 1 and 7 a.m. In re­sponse to Maxwell’s ques­tion, the clerk replied she would call 911. Maxwell still grabbed two 18-packs of Bud Light and left. The clerk did as she said.

Po­lice found Maxwell nearby with an 18-pack in each hand. Of­fi­cers said he strug­gled when they tried to ar­rest him.

He re­mained jailed Mon­day morn­ing on charges of petty theft and bat­tery on a po­lice of­fi­cer.
