Wisc. Man Buys Beer For 4-Year-Old Son

Authorities Seek Disorderly Conduct Charges

FOND DU LAC, Wis. — A father who bought a beer for his 4-year-old son at the Fond du Lac County Fair and shared it with the boy’s 2-year-old sibling is cited after becoming belligerent when he was approached by police.

A woman working at a beer tent last July told an officer she thought the man was joking when he asked for two beers — one for him and another for his 4-year-old son.

When he was questioned by an officer, he told him it’s legal for underage children to drink in Wisconsin, as long as they’re with their parents. The officer countered that the boy wasn’t old enough to know what they were drinking.

A police report says the man began yelling and swearing and was kicked off the fairgrounds.

The Fond du Lac County district attorney recently requested that the man be cited for disorderly conduct.
