A live-in caretaker has been accused of guzzling the liquor he found hidden behind a basement staircase at the mansion where he was living outside Pittsburgh.

John Saunders faces a bar tab amounting to $102,000 for allegedly drinking 52 bottles of rare pre-Prohibition Era whiskey.

The homeowner, Patricia Hill, had planned to donate the booze, which was part of a 104-bottle stash, to a local museum and had asked Saunders to keep it safe. The cops claim he drank half of the Old Farm Pure Rye bottles.
