Cops name new doughnut-eating champ

ELKHORN, Wis., May 31 (UPI) -- A southern Wisconsin sheriff's deputy has set the new law enforcement record for speed-eating doughnuts, wolfing down 13 of them in three minutes.

Walworth County, Wis., Jail Training Sgt. Howard Sawyers says he hasn't eaten a doughnut since winning the title at the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association convention last month in Arlington Heights, Ill.

Apart from a wall plaque for his home in Elkhorn, Wis., Sawyers won a free street survival training seminar valued at $400 and a Sig Sauer .40-caliber pistol, which has a $969 suggested retail value, the Janesville (Wis.) Gazette reported.

He said the secret to averaging one doughnut every 13.8 seconds was dipping them in water first to allow less chewing and more lubricated swallowing.

"When you have 13 doughnuts in three minutes, you're not worried too much about taste," Sawyers said.
