Lynne Rice, of Norwalk, California, was turned down while trying to buy beer last Sunday. Was she underage? Nope, the woman is 74 years old, well past the legal drinking age. Why was she denied then?

Because she had just driven her car into the convenience store she was trying to buy from.

It’s true. “The car plowed about halfway through the store but nobody was injured. Rice got out of the car, walked over to the cooler and pulled out a six-pack of Budweiser beer,” says the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

“I don’t know how she managed to walk,” said the store’s owner.

The cashier declined the sale and instead called police.
