Offbeat News: Beer goggles on the lam

According to the Chicago Tribune police in the Chicago suburb of Buffalo Grove are asking for the public’s help in returning a $150 pair of special goggles that are used to simulate the effects of intoxication.

Officers say the goggles disappeared this week from a table at a National Night Out event at a local park.

Officer Hector De La Paz says police believe the goggles were taken by accident.

Sometimes called “beer goggles,” the special glasses are used by police to demonstrate to high school students and parents how alcohol impairs a driver’s vision and judgment. They look like safety glasses.
