Man Arrested For Stealing Doughnut
You know times are hard when you can’t even afford a doughnut.
According to NY Daily News:
A Florida man was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors and a felony after allegedly fleeing a Walmart with a single stolen doughnut.
William Edward Hicks, 36, of Fort Walton Beach, was nabbed by an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputy after making the sticky-fingered sugar run earlier this month, according to an arrest report.
The store’s loss prevention officers reported seeing Hicks take the pastry out of a case before wandering back to the sporting goods section.
There they said he opened a laser sight package before putting it back on the shelf, but “not the the doughnut,” according to the arrest report.
“Hicks then departed the store through the Garden Department, passing all points of sale with the doughnut.”
He was reportedly confronted in the parking lot by the store’s security but defied their orders to go back inside and instead made a run for it.
Hicks was shortly after arrested in a neighboring parking lot before a deputy reported him struggling in his backseat, so much so that he injured his forehead while banging his head against the backseat’s wire cage.
He was charged with resisting an officer in the recovery of a stolen item, along with resisting without violence.
The idot risked his freedom over a doughnut. Lawd help him.
