A spilled beer is never worth someone's life, but it inexplicably cost Philadelphia Phillies fan David Sale his own in July of 2009. Sale—who was with a group of his friends at a bar near Citizens Bank Park after a Phillies-Cardinals game—got into an altercation where he was held down by two men and kicked to death by a third.

This all occurred after spilled drink set off a brawl between a group participating in a bar crawl and Sale's friends. Sale's group was a bachelor party, and his brother was the groom-to-be, but the night gave the men no cause for celebration. Instead, Sale was pronounced dead later that evening at the hospital. The three men were later charged with involuntary manslaughter.
