June 29, 4 p.m.

A man used a Walmart restroom as his own personal tomato-and-clam-flavored beer bar, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

A sheriff's deputy met with a Walmart loss prevention officer who'd seen the man—short and thin, with "a semblance of a mustache" and dressed in dark clothing—boldly carrying a four-pack of Bud Light Chelado ("clamato" beer) straight past the pharmacy and into the men's bathroom, where he spent "quite some time" before finally exiting the bathroom without the beer.

A sales associate said she'd later gone into the restroom to find numerous empty clamato cans; the store also had security-camera footage showing the man going in there with the beer (and leaving without it).

The subject obviously hadn't made a great effort to flee the scene, since the reporting deputy immediately located him wandering around a nearby Safeway parking lot. Upon being apprehended and questioned, the man admitted he'd been inside the Walmart, but only to buy some candy. When asked what type of candy, he said "beef jerky." The deputy told him "that was not typically considered a candy."

The man was no longer in possession of the beef jerky, so perhaps he'd been snacking on it in the bathroom while he drank his clamato.

At this point, the man started to get agitated, saying he "did not know what (the deputy) wanted from him" and exclaiming, "Just do what you have to do!"

The deputy cited and released the man for shoplifting.
