Two Wakeman men charged after caught drinking on their lunch break

Perkins police caught two Wakeman men reportedly drinking beer on the job in a van parked in a hotel parking lot.

Robert J. Foos, 51, and Robert Hendricks, 62, both of 5300 block of Zenobia Road, Wakeman, were charged with open container for the incident.

Police caught Foos and Hendricks holding "beers" while sitting in the driver's and passenger's seats, respectively. Keys were in the ignition and the van was running.

The officer also saw two empty beers in a bag on the van floor.

Foos and his acquaintance told the officer they were on their lunch break and they did not know it was illegal to drink beer while sitting in the vehicle.

Foos was tested and found to be within the legal limit to drive, but both men were issued summons for the open containers.
