NEW YORK, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- A New York 19-year-old accused of shoving a turkey breast into his pants at a grocery store told a newspaper he took a sandwich but denied stealing the breast.

Deon Williams turned down a plea deal with a six-month jail sentence for the robbery charge, claiming he was falsely accused of shoving the 12-pound Boars Head turkey breast into his pants and attempting to smuggle it out of the Fine Fare supermarket, the New York Post reported Thursday.

"I didn't do it," Williams told the Post. "OK, I stole a cold-cut sandwich because I was hungry, but I put everything (else) back."

Prosecutors allege Williams left the store with the turkey in his pants and was chased down by the butcher, who demanded he hand over the breast.

Williams allegedly placed the turkey on the ground and punched the butcher in the jaw.
