No Joke: Man Crashes Into Bar, Orders Drink

Police say it's no joke: A guy drives into a western Pennsylvania bar and asks the owner for a drink.

New Brighton police say the trouble is that 36-year-old Gordon Milligan, of Pulaski Township, literally drove into Wooley Bully's bar on Sunday.

Nobody was hurt, and the building wasn't badly damaged, but the bar owner gave chase. Police say that's when Milligan asked the bar owner for a drink, before driving away and crashing into a fence.

Police say they found Milligan in his wrecked pickup and charged him with drunken driving, reckless endangerment and other charges.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Milligan, who remained in the Beaver County Jail on Wednesday. He faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 11.

New Brighton is about 25 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
