  • Man locked in beer cooler cited for drinking

A man who found himself trapped inside a convenience store's beer cooler when it automatically closed and locked after selling time helped himself to some of the product, police said.

Van Ert was charged with retail theft and was later picked up and arrested on a probation hold.

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

Believing he was locked in the cooler for the night, Van Ert decided to make the most of his situation.

Van Ert remained in the cooler until 6 a.m. Wednesday, when a customer noticed him and alerted employees.

When police found and arrested the man, he told them he went into the store to buy beer and got locked inside the cooler just before midnight Tuesday.


Van Ert is being held in the Wood County Jail on probation hold due to an unrelated case.

The cooler has a glass door and if he knocked, employees would have heard him and allowed him out, the Wausau Daily Herald reported.

According to the police report, Van Ert drank an 18 ounce bottle of Icehouse Beer and three cans of Four Loko.

Gramza said in his 20 years in the police field, he hasn't seen anything like this. The conditions of his parole in that case had required him to stay sober, WAOW reports.

Kwik Trip told police that they are reviewing their security options.
