"You best be drinking what the Romans drink when you're drinking down in Rome"

That is quite inexcusable. Vodka? In Kentucky? Vodka's only good for thinning paint in Kentucky. She should have poured whiskey into a Coke bottle instead.

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (AP) -- A judge ordered a new trial in a case in which a juror sipped vodka throughout the trial.

Jefferson County Circuit Judge Geoffrey Morris said in his order that new trials may be granted only in the most extreme circumstances.

But he said "the inexcusable, disruptive behavior of this juror was so extraordinary as to render this relief appropriate."
