MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (WTVQ) – Deputies in Bell Co. say an intoxicated man looking for a cup of coffee asked the wrong people.

Deputies say they were at a Pilot gas station just before 11:00 a.m. on Thursday investigating a reported theft of an iPhone from the bathroom.

That’s when they say a clearly intoxicated Matthew Partin, 23, of Pineville, approached them and asked, “Sir, do you guys still have the frappuccino coffees?”

When the deputies assured Partin that they weren’t store clerks, Partin reportedly replied, “Never mind,” and walked to the back of the store.

After further investigation, deputies arrested Partin, and took him to the Bell Co. Detention Center.

Deputies say they followed up, contacting Pilot, where they learned the gas station does not currently carry frappuccino coffees.
