Man Reportedly Kidnapped, Force-Fed Beer in Utah
Tuesday, July 14, 2009

A man was kidnapped, force-fed beer and then abandoned on a Utah roadside in a possible case of mistaken identity, police say.  The victim — whose name and age were not available — was found by a passer-by walking across Legacy Highway near Centerville at about 9 a.m. Saturday, the Deseret News reported.

The man said he had been kidnapped roughly three hours earlier, according to Salt Lake Police Sgt. Dennis McGowan.  The victim, who was not seriously injured, told police he parked his car near his home when two Spanish-speaking men dragged him out into the driveway, the newspaper reported.

He was then allegedly thrown into their red pickup truck, where he claims the men pulled a bag over his head, bound his hands and feet with a wire coat hanger and put a gun to his stomach.  “They told him this was their area and that he can’t sell drugs here,” McGowan told the Deseret News.

McGowan told the paper the kidnappers force-fed the man two cans of beer prior to throwing him out of the truck, probably in an attempt to pass him off as a drunk who concocted the abduction story.  Two empty beer cans and a mangled wire hanger found on the side of the highway seemed to confirm the victim’s account, McGowan told the Deseret News.

Considering that up until recently, Utah required a ‘membership’ to drink in bars, I find this guy’s story as ridiculous as you probably do.  When drug dealers start a turf war they don’t generally do it over a couple Tecates in the back of a truck.  They slit someone’s throat and leave him lying in the street.

BAD MORMON!  BAD MORMON!  And you don’t frame someone as a drunk with beer, you use BOOZE.  Every one knows that.
