Beer to go?

Many dining establishments have a BYO (Bring Your Own) liquor policy. But two men in Indianapolis preferred BSE: Bring Someone Else's liquor.

A truck full of 1,200 cases of miscellaneous liquor was hijacked in Indianapolis on Sunday and was found in Chicago early Monday.

According to Indianapolis police, two armed men wearing ski masks pulled a Wisconsin driver out of his semi-tractor trailer, which was parked at National Wine and Spirit on Morris Street.

After hitting, handcuffing and throwing the driver into an empty truck nearby, they hitched the big rig's trailer to their own truck and drove away.

Indianapolis detectives are currently investigating. Sgt. Paul Thompson has said that he didn't know where the truck was found or—get this—whether the liquor was still in the truck.

Somewhere, someone is having one heck of a party.
