Drunk Decision Leads To Big Trouble For Saint John Man

It's not a very smart move to get drunk and rob your own employer--considering they know exactly who you are.

That's the observation being made by Judge Henrik Tonning  to 35 year old Simon Basque.

Basque pleaded guilty to holding up his boss's brother at knife point, demanding a debit card, the PIN number, and car keys. He then tied up the victim in a bathroom and fled in their van.

He was later pulled over in Quebec and arrested. He said he doesn't know why he did it considering he didn't want to hurt anyone and he even had money on him at the time. Tonning suggested he get some alcohol counseling....and he'll be back in court on December 18th.
