Apparently the nationwide White Claw shortages aren’t happening anymore . . . or you wouldn’t see someone using them like THIS.

There’s a 36-year-old guy named Matthew Stinson, and he pulled a KNIFE on a clerk at a hotel in Lincoln, Nebraska on Sunday afternoon.  It’s not clear WHY he was so mad, and he took off before the cops got there.

They found him about six hours later, and he tried to get away by . . . throwing a can of WHITE CLAW at them.

But he missed . . . and the cops caught him after a short chase.

He’s been charged with resisting arrest, making terroristic threats, and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony.  That last charge is about him pulling the knife, by the way . . . the White Claw was NOT a deadly weapon.
