Man just out of German jail allegedly steals sparkling wine

By The Associated Press

BERLIN (AP) — A 25-year-old man found himself back behind bars in Germany after he was accused of stealing sparkling wine the day he was let out of prison.

Police said the man was observed allegedly taking several bottles of bubbly on Friday from a shop in the Bavarian city of Fuerth.

A shop worker notified police and reported following the suspect down the street. Police say the ex-prisoner was arrested with the bottles allegedly in his possession.

It may be a while before the suspect is finally able to pop a cork in celebration. German police said Monday he allegedly had a knife in his pocket so he's also being investigated on armed robbery charges.
