Dude dies after downing 23 shots of vodka at strip club

Sheriff's deputies believe a Seffner man may have drunk himself to death, by downing 23 shots of vodka in 30 minutes. Deputies discovered the body of Eric Morris at a bar on US 92 in Tampa Tuesday night. Morris was 26 years old.

According to a sheriff's spokesman, Morris went to "The Angels" bar, which is a topless bar, and began ordering shots of Burnett's Cherry Vodka. He was playing a drinking game with a friend. The police report says his friend told Morris he was too old to keep playing the game, but Morris continued.

He drank 23 shots in 30 minutes before passing out. His friend dragged him to the club's champagne room where Morris died. The medical examiner's office says the cause of death is pending and it may take four to six weeks before they have blood tests back to show Morris' blood alcohol level.
