MADISON, Wis., July 8 (UPI) -- Wisconsin police said a robbery victim threw a temper tantrum in the middle of a Madison road when officers told him his brandy was being booked as evidence.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain said the 50-year-old man decided to buy a bottle of brandy to share with two white male teens he was talking to Friday in James Madison Park and the teenagers then robbed him of the booze and his wallet at gunpoint, The Capital Times, Madison, reported Thursday.

DeSpain said the suspects fled but police dogs led officers to two backpacks believed to belong to the teenagers.

"The brandy was in one backpack," DeSpain said. "The victim became very upset when informed it was evidence and he wouldn't be getting it back immediately."

The spokesman said the man lay down in the road and demanded the return of his brandy.

"He was arrested later on for making false 911 calls (that were) more failed attempts at retrieving his liquor," DeSpain said.
