Allegedly Bad Whiskey Leads to Lawsuit

2008_2_12.noturine.jpgWell, the hits just kept on coming for one Mr. Christopher T. Turner of South Carolina. Last February, he checked into the Drake, where he was staying while on a business trip. He decided to have a little whiskey from the minibar, but when he drank the mini bottle of Dewar's White Label Scotch Whiskey, he says it tasted like urine.

Turner contacted the director of sales about the tainted whiskey, and a fight ensued because the director attempted to confiscate the bottle. Turner was thrown out of the hotel, forcing him to stay at the Park Hyatt Chicago.

Wait, what? There's definitely something missing from this story. Turner says he when he tried to get his company to pay his hotel bill and they found out about the altercation, he got fired. Now he's suing the Drake, which leads us to our new favorite headline:

Lawsuit: Whiskey Tasted Like Urine And I Got Fired
