Iowa City police arrested a local man after he allegedly sprayed them with beer early Wednesday morning.

Francis Shane Granger, 47, 128.5 N. Clinton St. Apt. 6, was charged July 13 with a habitual alcohol violation.

Reports said officers spotted Granger at the intersection of Dubuque and Jefferson Streets standing next to a traffic sign that was swaying as if he had been shaking it.

When asked about the sign, officers said Granger responded, “I was so drunk, that I accidentally … That’s what happened.”

Police noticed four beers in Granger’s pocket, and when asked to pour them out, officers said he threw the full cans on the ground and stomped on them, spraying them with alcohol.

Granger had a blood-alcohol level of .209. This is his sixth intoxication charge, with five previous convictions between April 1998 and December 2010.
