Four Loko, World's Deadliest Beverage, Fells Another Innocent Man
Q: What can drive a young man to stand in the roadway, assume a fighting stance, and yell, “Come on you pussies, I’ll beat all of your asses.”
A: Four Loko, the Devil’s elixir.
The world’s most dangerous beverage apparently contributed to the extreme drunkenness of Joshua Davis, a 20-year-old Floridian nabbed this month for disorderly intoxication, a misdemeanor. Neighbors told Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies that Davis, pictured in the above mug shot, was “trying to start a physical altercation with them.” When cops confronted Davis, “the defendant stated that he had only drank 2 Locos, and he had a ‘buzz.’”
Four Loko, you may have read, is the caffeinated alcoholic energy drink that has been referred to glowingly as “liquid cocaine.”
