A New York man facing a driving while intoxicated charge showed up to court for a hearing, but was sent to jail before he even had a chance to step into the courtroom.

A New York man facing a driving while intoxicated charge showed up to court for a hearing, but was sent to jail before he even had a chance to step into the courtroom.

Keith Gruber, 49, of Swan Lake, arrived for his appointment 90 minutes late with an open can of beer while acting visibly drunk, officials said. At the security check, authorities uncovered four additional cans of Busch beer in a black bag Gruber was attempting to carry into the courtroom, the Times Herald-Record reports.

The bag was then presented to the judge, who in turn relieved Gruber’s attorney from the case and put the suspect in jail with no bail.

Gruber said he was sorry for the incident and tried to throw away the open beer can – but officers stopped him.
