Thank God the police were there to arrest this menace of society. How dare he have a beer in front of his house. Meanwhile, break-ins are still occurring.

It never occurred to me that it was a criminal offense to sip a beer in front of your own house. I assume it is because he was on the parkway, or had his feet on the street, as opposed to being entirely on his front lawn? Can I have a beer in my back yard while cooking brats on July 4 or is that illegal too?

I think there is a fine line, between tasteful and un-tasteful conduct. Elmhurst is not some hill billy ghetto hick town where people park their vehicles on their front lawns and drink budweisers watching cars drive by. Elmhurst pushes the character counts campaign and the town caters to the well-to-do, type. In order to keep the community affluent and generally nice. Obviously trashy people are also attracted to nice places, but only after their own trashy neighborhoods have been deemed ghettos, and sewers do they want to come to your town to party.

This poor fellow who was drinking on the curb needs to get himself some help. He has been arrested many times in Elmhurst (from Patch police blotter) but police can only do so much, like pick him up from drinking on the curb, and let him sober up in a jail cell for a couple of hours. Unless he gets some help, sadly, we are going to be seeing more of him in the blotter.
