It’s not football season so they don’t need those beers now anyway, right?

I guess that was the thought process for a Nashville man who was arrested after breaking into Nissan Stadium, home of the Tennessee Titans, and attempting to steal over two dozen beers.

According to WKRN, security at the stadium saw William Thrift on surveillance video loading 29 beers from a cooler into a black bag and a box.

When confronted by stadium security, Thrift ran from the stadium, leaving his beers behind.

He was located a short time later in the stadium parking lot by Metro Police, where he admitted to the theft and told police he did it because “the door was open.”

Hard to argue with that logic.

Thrift was eventually arrested on a charge of felony burglary and later released on a $3,500 bond.

Man, that’s rough – stadium beer’s so expensive these days that stealing a 30 rack is a felony.

But the good news is that he left the beer behind, so fans who are coming into town for the Garth concert at the end of the month shouldn’t have to worry about the stadium running out of libations.
