Spilled beer lands man in jail

WICHITA — How much is a cup of beer worth?

A trip to jail for one 27-year-old man, apparently.

The man became incensed when a teenage boy he knows knocked over his beer with a ball at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 200 block of North Emporia, police said. He grabbed the 16-year-old boy around the throat and cut him across the stomach with a pocket knife, witnesses said.

Police called to the scene noted a small cut on the boy's stomach and redness on his neck. The man was arrested and booked into the Sedgwick County Jail.
