Drunk Man Drives Boom Lift at 3 A.M. on Craigslist Dare

When Police spotted a man driving a piece of construction lift equipment down a street at 3 a.m. on Thursday, they knew something wasn’t right.  Police pulled the vehicle over and discovered a man, who apparently had been drinking, with an unopened six-pack of beer and a bag of beef jerky.

At first the 29-year old man told police he was just going to the store. However, when asked why he was in the bucket on the lift, he said he was delivering the $20,000 piece of construction equipment on a dare from a stranger he met on Craigslist, according to a police report.

The Everett Herald reported the lift apparently had been taken from a construction site. The man was then jailed for investigation of theft.
