Florida Man Insists on Being Able to Drink Shoplifted Beer Before Paying Debt to Society

kprghw-linthicumgeorger0119358There is a certain logic to the position of George R. Linthicum II, who was arrested after shoplifting beer from a Florida convenience store. If he was going to go to jail, he insisted that the police at least allow him to drink one of the beers.


Linthicum is charged Wednesday with shoplifting, battery, possession of marijuana not more than 20 grams and smuggling contraband into a detention facility.

It appears that incarceration is not treated as payment for the beer in Florida.

  1. Linthicum is charged Wednesday with shoplifting, battery, possession of marijuana not more than 20 grams and smuggling contraband into a detention facility.

    I can understand all of the charges but the last one. How the hell can you smuggle into a Jail when your hands are cuffed and are not free to leave. I presume that he way brought in through a secure “Sally Port”?

    If he is convicted of this one, then I would file suit against the officer for false imprisonment or the officer should be suspended for failing to properly secure the suspect and threatening security at a penal institution.

  2. As I understand it, he was recently laid off from the blood for oil program which was once booming in Baghdad.

    He was not de-briefed sufficiently evidently.
