|36. Nebraska Dumps $140,000 Worth Of Wine (Nebraska)
August 30, 2007
The state has dumped about $140,000 worth of wine that had belonged to a man accused of vandalizing a winery near North Platte.
The Nebraska Liquor Control Commission says it couldn't identify exactly where the wine came from or whether it would pass safety standards.
It had belonged to a former Feather River Vineyards employee, David Jurena.
Jurena has been charged with burglary and criminal mischief and faces trial next month.
He is accused of draining more than 300 gallons of wine from winery tanks last October.
Authorities say he ruined the wine by putting in too much sulfur dioxide, then dumped it to avoid being caught.
