Florida Man Tries For New World Record By Drinking 33 Beers In One Night St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office

A Florida man tried to beat a world record by drinking 33 beers in a single night. At least that’s what Michael Monahan, 48, told St. Lucie County sheriff’s deputies as he was arrested outside Body Talk Sports Bar on South U.S. 1, the TC Palm reports. Needless to say, things didn’t go so well for him.

  1. Monahan got a little rowdy while drinking. According to reports, he used foul language and tried to fight when police arrived. They’d been called out just before midnight to the adult entertainment establishment after receiving reports about a man passed out in the parking lot. A woman was there rubbing Monahan’s back – she was later identified as his fiancee.
  2. He decided to try and fight the police. While Monahan’s fiancee warned him to “be calm please and don’t fight them,” he didn’t take her advice. Instead, he stood up and stepped up to the officers, saying: “Oh you want to [expletive] fight? Let’s go then.”
  3. Officers tried to tell Monahan that they just wanted to help. However, he wasn’t calmed by this. He instead put his fists up and said: “Let’s go [expletive].”
  4. Monahan was cuffed and taken into custody. However, they first took him to a hospital where he revealed just how much he’d been drinking. Had he really downed 33 beers, that would be three gallons of beer. He was arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer without violence.
