In an alarming case of killing two birds with one stone, a man was stopped at a security checkpoint inside Hefei South Railway Station last week for carrying a 0.5kg bottle of baijiu. Upon being told he wasn’t allowed to take the bottle on board, he shrugged, and chugged it down. Waste not, want not as they say.
From there, Xinhua reports, the tale took a quick turn for the worse as instead of being granted passage through security, he was then detained thanks to his newfound drunken state. Another unfortunate side effect of the booze was that he suddenly found himself compelled to inform the police that — oh, by the way — he was also carrying around some drugs.
A quick search discovered 3 grams of heroin in his underwear.
This isn’t the first time people have been denied travel due to excessive amounts of alcohol, like the lady who decided to chug down an entire bottle of cognac and the two men who chose to slam an expensive aphrodisiac wine rather than let it go to waste.
Drink responsibly guys. And don’t carry drugs either. Railway officials have eyes like hawks.
