Strange News – Inmates Suing Booze Companies, Blaming Them For Being Behind Bars
Five inmates at a jail in Boise, Idaho, have filed a billion dollar lawsuit, claiming they wouldn't be behind bars if it wasn't for booze. Cory A. Baugh, Jeremy J. Brown, Keith Allen Brown, Woodrow J. Grant, and Steven J. Thompson -- who all were sentenced to jail for crimes ranging from murder to selling drugs -- say manufacturers like Miller Brewing Company and Anheuser-Busch, as well as wine makers like E. and J. Gallo should have warned them their products can be addictive. The inmates, who don't have a lawyer, are asking for warning labels on alcohol products, and a billion dollars in damages.
