Only in Wisconsin.

Nathan Tyler Meleski went on the ride of his life Sunday and it's going to cost him a lot more than a cab fare.

The drunk Green Bay Packers fan, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, lost his phone and friends and ended up convincing a taxi driver to bring him home. But this guy's home was 111 miles from Lambeau Field in the town of Richfield, Wisconsin (near Milwaukee).

The price for the ride was a whopping $475, at which point the drunken cheesehead told the cab driver he was going inside to get money from an ATM. But he didn't. Instead, he ran out the back where police found him at a bar by following his footprints in fresh snow.

This is the guy.
