Woman Arrested For Stealing Three French Fries

An intoxicated woman was arrested in Washington D.C. after she stole three french fries from a police officer’s plate at a restaurant without any shame.

One woman likely regrets a recent drunken night in Washington D.C.  when she found herself behind bars for snatching French fries directly from an officer's plate. 

An unidentified intoxicated woman was at the Italian Pizza Kitchen restaurant on U Street and she sat next to a cop. At one point, she decided to reach over and steal three of his French fries, Fox 5 reports.

The Maryland resident first took one fry, and when she tried to take the second, the officer told her to stop.

“I politely asked D-1 [the woman] 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,” the unnamed police officer said.

After taking the second fry, the woman allegedly said, “Well then you might as well take me to jail.”

The frustrated cop arrested the woman and she now faces second-degree theft charges after she continued her act and stole a third fry.

Apparently, this woman will do anything for fresh French fries when she is intoxicated, even if it means stealing from a member of law enforcement.
