    Partying it up with green beer on St. Patrick's Day ended badly for a counselor with the Cook County Juvenile Detention system.

    A 26-year-old man who spends his days working as a counselor in the Cook County juvenile detention system spent his St. Patrick’s Day night passed out in his car, and getting arrested in a scuffle with police, according to a report on ChicagoBreakingNews.com.

    Police tried to arrest Enrique Lopez after finding him passed out behind the wheel of his Infiniti G35 around 1 a.m. Friday. But when Lopez refused to hand over his keys or get out of the car, police pulled him out and took him to the ground, according to the report.

    Police say Lopez continued to struggle, and in the fight punched an officer in the face, breaking his glasses.

    Lopez was charged with DUI, reckless driving, marijuana possession and resisting an officer. He’s being held on 10,000 bail.
