    Comes out to a little more that a case a day. He's likely got it bad ... this sounds like maintenance drinking.
    He's drying out now. Hope he gets some help.

    "Zebulon police say he stole a total of 28 cases of Budweiser and Bud Light..."

    If I was going to risk going to prison for a few cases of beer, I would at least grab the good stuff!
