(Newser) – A soldier attempting to play billiards using a beer bottle in place of a pool cue was arrested at an Oklahoma bar after he tried to pay his tab using gum wrappers, the Lawton Constitution reports. Another customer picked up the $32 bill, but the 28-year-old will face charges of disorderly conduct and assaulting a police officer, the AP reports.
