Life imitates 'Seinfeld' in Michigan recycling scam

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.

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.
In case this sounds familiar, it the basis of a Seinfeld episode: The Michigan Deposit Bottle Scam.

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!
