Iowa Police Share Solid Contender for Cheesiest St Patrick's Day 'Warning'

The Ames Police Department in Iowa used one of their regular “Quick Tips” videos on March 16 to get in some St Patrick’s Day advice.

“We would rather you find the gold at the end of the rainbow, than our handcuffs at the end of your celebration,” Officer Eric Snyder begins.

First up is making sure to designate a sober driver if you plan to “enjoy a green (or any color) beer,” then there’s a warning regarding the legality of pinching (it’s “technically assault”).

His final tip? “Take it easy on the green clothing and accessories, if you don’t follow the other rules, at least you won’t look ridiculous in your mugshot.” Credit: Ames Police Department via Storyful
