TAMPA, Florida – A drunken Florida man entered a 7-Eleven store and used a walk-in cooler to relieve himself.

Daniel Colon, 46, was unable to find the bathroom, so he entered a door marked “Employees Only” instead, according to Treasure Island police.

Colon walked in, saw several cases of beer, and began urinating on them. A store employee spotted the criminal act and asked him to stop. Colon then left the store still intoxicated.

Police said the man “urinated over 6 cases of Busch Light” beer, causing at least $100 in damages.

Colon was arrested after police spotted the vehicle not far from the 7-Eleven. He reportedly told police that he couldn’t locate the bathroom, so he used the walk-in cooler instead.

Police charged the Tampa resident with criminal mischief, burglary charges stemming from the cooler urination, and a charge for drunk driving.

Colon is locked up at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $3250 bond.
