[Ed. – It had to happen sometime.]
Lakeland police say they got a call Tuesday about 10:50 a.m. about a man sitting in a chair at a TV table in the crosswalk of Memorial Boulevard at Brunnell Parkway.
He had a bottle of syrup and pancakes with what appeared to be bacon and scrambled eggs on a plate in front of him. He was chowing down.
“There’s a gentlemen sitting in the middle of the road with a folding table eating. Eating. Just sitting in the middle of road eating with a chair and a folding table,” a man told a 911 dispatcher. …
Police said the man left before officers arrived, but they later found a video of the breakfast break on Facebook, where several people had tagged the alleged eater.
They went back to the intersection Thursday and found a suspect, Kiaron Thomas, 21, living about 100 yards away.
