The confidence of beer lovers attending professional football games will forever be shaken after police snag a concessions worker for selling suds in used plastic cups.
Tampa police detective Bill Todd caught John Angelus Keene in the act at a Tampa Bay Buccaneers game at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, reports the Associated Press. He was picking up soiled cups from tables, refilling them without rinsing them and then selling them to unsuspecting football fans.

"I've never seen anything like it," Todd told the AP. "Naturally, you think of health issues."
Keene, who is a member of a military retiree group, was voluntarily manning the Bud Light booth near the south end zone.
Aramark Inc., the Philadelphia foodservice company that provides the stadium's concessions, declined to release the name of the organization to the AP. But they did contact police after they discovered a discrepancy between how much beer was sold and what Keene reported as being sold.
Police say Keene pocketed the $1,080 and have charged the 68-year-old with felony grand theft.
