Urnge thirst


Two people are charged with attempting to steal more than $600 worth of beer after breaking into Neyland Stadium on the University of Tennessee campus over the weekend, according to arrest warrants.

Police were dispatched shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday after as many as five people were spotted on security cameras inside the football stadium.

Officers arrived to catch three people inside the perimeter fencing near Gate 22. Two of the suspects were carrying 24 beers apiece.

Beers at Neyland Stadium are sold for $12-13 each.

The total beers between them were valued at $624, the warrants read.

Rachel N. Barber, 20 of Nashville, and Spencer Ranencio Ngumuya, 19, of Osceola, Indiana, both admitted to crawling under the fencing to gain access to the locked stadium, and then deciding to steal the beers once they spotted them inside a walk-in cooler, the warrants state.

Seemed like a good idea at the time, no doubt.  In hindsight, though, trying to steal the most expensive Miller Lights in the state of Tennessee might not have been so smart.

    Well, if I’m Vowel fan and I see how far behind UGA the football program is, I would drink heavily too.

    Ha! Those beers are only worth $624 on game day. In reality they got busted for trying to steal maybe $35 worth of beer. Getting caught is going to cost them a lot more than $35.

      Actually you have put your finger on the very legal issue presented by this. If the beer is only worth about $20 or so the charge has to only be a misdemeanor.

        I disagree. In Burglary (at least in GA) the value of an item is not relevant except perhaps in determining the amount of restitution. Entry with the intent to commit a crime is all that is required, and they have that here I would guess.

        I am astounded that there is an Osceola town in Indiana, though.

          I am not a lawyer, but I know a few of you all are.
          Wouldn’t they be looking to plea this down to something like misdemeanor disorderly conduct? Pay a fine and do community service.

            Yes, that’s what you would try to do, but as a technical matter they are on solid ground with burglary. My guess is if the kids are clean they get off pretty easy, but if not, maybe not.
