A 51-year-old man from Clearwater, New Jersey has earned the nickname “Bud Light Mike” after being arrested several times for being publicly intoxicated and stealing Bud Light beer.
Police from Pinellas County said that Michael Filipkowski was arrested on Saturday (12/5) after employees of a Publix supermarket spotted him stealing a 24-pack of Bud Light.
When police arrived on the scene they found him standing outside the store in possession of the 24-pack but by the time they got to him, it only had 21 cans left in the case.
“(Filipkowski) was observed walking inside Publix obtaining a case of Bud Light cans 12oz. and walking out beyond the point of sale and outside the store,” NY Daily News reported the police saying.
When Bud Light Mike was questioned about the beer, he denied being inside the store even though security footage showed evidence of him walking in and stealing the Bud Light.
Back in April, he was also busted for having an open container of Bud Light while he was at the beach and also when he was standing at a bus stop. Additionally, it was also reported that he ordered a Bud Light and a shot at a hotel bar and couldn’t pay the tab. On top of that, he’s been arrested for drunk driving, disorderly conduct, and trespassing.
Hopefully, Mr. Bud Light Mike can get his act together and stay out of trouble.
