Officials say the pair walked up to the Johnson County Law Enforcement Facility just after 2 a.m. Sunday and waved at deputies through a window. When deputies answered the door, the two said they came to bail out their friend, who had been arrested for underage drinking.
While talking to the men--20-year-old Hanni Bichir and 19-year-old Triston Burton--deputies noticed they smelled of alcohol and appeared to be drunk. A portable breathalyzer was requested, and when it arrived, Triston blew a sample of .135 and Hannie a sample of .161.
Both were placed in handcuffs and walked around the corner into a jail cell. They were both remanded for possession of alcohol by a minor.
So this story came up in my TimeHop today and I had to give it a shoutout. This combination of article and picture never fails to make me laugh. The premise is something that would happen in a below-average Miles Teller movie: one underage friend is acting like a drunk asshole, gets thrown in the drunk tank for the night, and then his two idiot buddies try to bail him out. In the Miles Teller version of the story, they escape from the cell in some wacky fashion, like the cop in the station falling asleep and leaving the key within reach of the cell. In the real-life version, you get your mugshot plastered everywhere and you get laughed at by everyone on the internet.
And let's talk about the mugshot. Triston on the right (side note: is there anyone in the world who's more of a Triston than this blonde-haired dude who's smiling in his mug shot?) is thinking "Haha this is hilarious, my super-rich dad will get me out of this." Meanwhile, Hanni on the left there is having the completely appropriate reaction to what just happened: "I can't believe I let this idiot talk me into trying this."
So thank you, Hanni and Triston, for thinking that a plan like this would work and giving me a good laugh even two years after the fact. Hopefully you're off somewhere drinking a legal beer and laughing about how dumb you were on that fateful night two years ago.
