Excess alcohol can hinder your ability to do a lot of basic things -- drive a car, eat a burrito slowly, and sit out that next round of drinks.
It can also make you a pretty lousy informer.
According to police, two men were at the intersection of Geary and Hyde just after midnight when they got into a verbal argument with a man in a wheelchair. The guy in the wheelchair reportedly pulled out a knife and stabbed one of the guys in the back.
The two victims ran off and flagged down some cops in the area.
But by the time they reached the cops, the only thing they could really describe was their drunken state. As the cops attempted to jot down details for a crime report, the two victims were "too intoxicated to provide detailed information," according to police reports.
The second victim had a swollen eye, but "did not recall how his eye was injured," Officer Gordon Shyy tells us.
Case (probably) closed.
