A wine thief at the Sherman Oaks Trader Joe's nearly lost his life after cops shot at him last night. We hope he wasn't just boosting a case of Two Buck Chuck.
Two LAPD officers were outside the store investigating a traffic incident when out comes Senor Boost-A-Vino with a case in-hand, according to KCAL 9.
The cops seemed to figure out what was happening in an instant:
[Corrected at 11:23 a.m. Wednesday]: Luckily the haul wasn't Two Buck Chuck. The Los Angeles Times' Andrew Blankstein interviewed witnesses at the store who said the suspect had boosted several bottles of champagne. Expensive champagne. Still not worth it, but a little more respectable. [With reporting from City News Service / @dennisjromero / email@example.com / @LAWeeklyNews]
