Dublin Man Steals Trailer Full of Beer from Guinness

Irish pub goers surely raised many pints of Guinness to a ruling by the European Parliament not to impose the metric system on Britain and Ireland. Meanwhile, a thief drove into the Guinness brewery in Dublin and drove out with a trailer full of the stuff, including 180 kegs of Budweiser.

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

Irish pub goers surely raised many pints of Guinness yesterday to a ruling by the European Parliament. It decided not to impose the continent's metric system on Britain and Ireland.

He also took 180 kegs of Budweiser.
