    Default Cops bust teens' root-beer kegger - MSNBC.Com

    Having attended more than my share of "keggers" in high school, It's hard to not be a hypocrite... But, this is pretty damn funny!

    Cops bust teens' root-beer kegger
    Dozens of high schoolers forced to take breath tests

    WAUSAU, Wis. - Cars lining the street. A house full of young people. A keg and drinking games inside. Police thought they had an underage boozing party on their hands.

    But though they made dozens of teens take breath tests, none tested positive for alcohol. That's because the keg contained root beer.

    The party was held by a high school student who wanted to show that teens don't always drink alcohol at their parties. It has gained fame on YouTube.com.

    Dustin Zebro, 18, said he staged the party after friends at D.C. Everest High School got suspended from sports because of pictures showing them drinking from red cups.

    The root-beer kegger was "to kind of make fun of the school," he said. "They assumed there was beer in the cups. We just wanted to have some root beer in red cups and just make it look like a party, but there actually wasn't any alcohol."

    Zebro purchased a quarter-barrel of 1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer, and by 10 p.m. Saturday, the scene outside his rural Wausau home had all the makings of a teen drinking party — cars, noise and kids.

    Kronenwetter Police Chief Daniel Joling said an officer was dispatched to the home March 1 on a complaint of cars blocking the road.

    Juveniles began coming out of the house after the officer used his squad car's loudspeaker to warn that cars would soon be towed, Officer Jason Rasmussen wrote in his report.

    Nearly 90 breath tests were done, and officers even searched locked rooms for hiding teens.

    "It was a tremendous waste of time and manpower, but we still had a job to do, and our officers did it," Joling said. "If one kid had come there, even hadn't drank there, but had come there and had been drinking and had left and crashed and burned, then what would the sentiment be? Why didn't the police check everybody out?"

    School Superintendent Kris Gilmore did not immediately return a message Friday.

    What's with the root beer craze lately? I heard somewhere that a college in Utah had students playing beer pong with root beer. How friggin' lame is that? I bet you their version of 'hooking up' with someone would be dry-humping.

    I highly recommend the use of root-beer or wine in a bong. Quite refreshing, actually. Yes, it must be changed frequently.

    Back in college we had to have dry rush weeks. One year we got a keg of O'Douls with a Budweiser tap and had a big party. Most of the people there realized it was non alcoholic but there were a number of people, mostly women, that I overheard saying things like "I'm so wasted", "I am totally buzzed", etc. It was pretty funny. It would almost make a good marketing experiment.

    Pretty novel idea. Never heard of putting root beer in a keg before but then I don't get out much any more.

    Those cops were a bit overzealous tho, don'tcha think?

    I tried this, but the damn root beer kept fizzing up the bong tube and sending CO2 bubbles up my nose.
