Yeah, I know today is Flag Day, but after this past weekend, I need something funnier to cheer me up. Fortunately, the Detroit Free Press delivered with yesterday's story about a man busted with 10,000 bottles in return scam. Seriously.
A Genesee County man was arraigned in Livingston County for trying to return more than 10,000 non-returnable bottles.In case this sounds familiar, it the basis of a Seinfeld episode: The Michigan Deposit Bottle Scam.
Brian Edward Everidge, 44, of Columbiaville pleaded not guilty to one count of beverage return of non-refundable bottles, which carries a penalty of up to five years in prison.
Everidge, who is free on a $5,000 personal bond, returns to 53rd District Court on June 22 for a preliminary exam conference. The preliminary exam is tentatively set for June 29.
Newman tries to do what Kramer never could.
HAHAHAHA! That's exactly what my "I can't be all DOOM all the time" mood needed -- a funny recycling crime story of life imitating art!
