Johannesburg - Eastern Cape police spokesperson Priscilla Naidu said on Wednesday that a man who allegedly broke into a bar in Uitenhage and drank himself into a stupor had been in hospital since Saturday.

"It is alleged that the man, in his early twenties, broke into the bar early on Saturday morning and had a party all by himself," said Naidu.

The bar owner found the "highly intoxicated" man just before 07:00 on Saturday.

The bar owner contacted the police and the man was taken to hospital, where he remained in the intensive care unit for treatment for alcohol poisoning.
His condition was stable, Naidu said.

He was expected to appear in court soon on charges related to house breaking.

    Charges related to house breaking only? What about theft, all the alcohol he consumed without paying for it??
