Movie fan fulfills patrol car fantasy
Anchorage police arrested Logan Nielsen, 18, and Toby Gause, 19, for minor consuming on May 6 while investigating a disturbance on Heritage Court. Both provided breath samples that estimated their alcohol levels at just under the legal limit, police spokeswoman Anita Shell said. Then Gause, after escorted into a patrol car, stated he'd consumed about a half-bottle of tequila and asked if he could "do something," Shell said. According to the officer's report, he then licked the plastic divider separating the driver's seat from the rear of the vehicle and said, " 'The snozberries taste like snozberries!' "
The line comes from the movie "Super Troopers" as borrowed from "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" and it's pretty likely those dividers don't taste like any kind of berry at all.
