A woman was arrested after taking three French fries from an officer’s plate at a restaurant in Washington, D.C.
It’s hard to resist the allure of french fries for many. Typically, indulging in some will cost you several dollars and perhaps higher cholesterol. However, a woman in DC ended up paying far more for indulgence as she didn’t follow the social as well as the legal norm for that matter. According to the Washington Post, the woman was arrested after allegedly taking 3 french fries from a police officer’s plate at a DC restaurant. WTTG notes she was at a table next to the officer when she reach out and grabbed two fries. The officer then warned her to stop. According to a police report, “I then politely asked D-1 to not do that again because I paid for that food and she was stealing from me and she could be arrested for theft of my food,” says the officer. As you’d have guessed what happened next, the woman then reached over to grab the third fry and that’s when she was arrested and charged with theft.
