And you thought beer at a Canucks game was expensive.
Oak Bay police say their oddest call of the week went to a 31-year-old male who insisted on enjoying his beer, at 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning, outside the plaza at 2800 Foul Bay Rd. (home of Chiarelli’s Cheese Shop and Delicatessen, Hot House Pizza and Tomley’s Market).
The attending officer requested the male stop drinking the beer yet he chose to continue drinking.
It resulted in a $230 ticket.
“I’ve paid too much for a beer before but I’ve never come close to that. It’s an expensive lesson but only time will tell if he learned from it,” said Oak Bay Police Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties.
