Too much product testing?  The Chattanooga Times Free Press is reporting that the co-founder of Chattanooga Whiskey was arrested Sunday for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and retaliation against a judge, juror or officer.

“Frankly, believe it or not, I make mistakes just like regular human beings, and Saturday night was no different,” he said. “At the end of the day I’m not an advocate for being irresponsible, and I think whiskey should be consumed and enjoyed slowly. In my opinion, I have a responsibility more than others because of what I do for a living. It’s unacceptable.”
