Kentucky fan arrested for stealing 28 cases of beer from Louisville restaurant

In January, two men stole 28 cases of beer from a restaurant in Louisville. Yesterday, police finally arrested one of them. And he was wearing a Kentucky shirt.

Ernest Richardson Jr., a 49-year-old man and apparent member of Big Blue Nation, was taken into custody yesterday for his part in the heist. He and his partner in crime were caught on camera breaking into the beer fridge outside El Nopal on Dixie Highway around 5 a.m. on a Saturday and stealing the 28 cases, which are valued at approximately $1,000.

Richardson faces charges of burglary (3rd Degree), possession of burglary tools, criminal mischief (3rd Degree), criminal trespass (2nd degree), and Theft by unlawful taking (TBUT). 

I hope the party was worth it.

    The good news is Kentucky Fan is unlikely to ever outdo Florida Man as a source of dumb criminal material.

    That’s around $35 a case, he doesn’t strike me as the craft beer type. Mmmmm….craft beer.

    Is KSR,this desperate for a filler, to post this on a sports blog ?

      Who said this was a sports blog ? Let us know who is spreading those nasty rumors. ESPN is a multimedia sports blog. KSR is a lifestyle.

      Agreed Katzfan!
      I see these comments every once in awhile and smile because little do these fans realize KSR is noted for off the wall and fun entries ever since Matt started it years ago. It’s who KSR is and one of the reasons I love it.
