The 51-year-old man now living in Clearwater, was arrested Saturday after witnesses told police he stole a case of Bud Light from a Publix.

When police caught up to him, he only had 21/24 cans left.

“Filipkowski was observed walking inside Publix obtaining a case of Bud Light cans 12oz. and walking out beyond the point of sale and outside the store,” according to police.

This isn't Mike's first Budweiser-related crime.

Some of his background includes:

  • Stealing a case of Budweiser from a grocery store
  • Carrying open containers of Bud Light at the beach
  • Carrying open containers of Bud Light at a bus stop
  • Stealing Bud Light from a Speedway
  • Ordering Bud Light and a shot from a hotel bar when he knew he couldn't pay for it

Of course, his rap sheet is full of DUI's, disorderly conduct and trespassing.
