BARTONVILLE, Ill., Dec. 14 (UPI) -- An Illinois man was cited for disorderly conduct for allegedly chucking a dead squirrel through a fast-food restaurant's drive-through window, police say.

Christopher Thompson, 26, of Pekin, is accused of rolling up to a Hardee's drive-through window in Bartonville Dec. 3 and asking the attendant for "extra nuts" for the squirrel he was petting. When the employee said she didn't think it was a real squirrel, he allegedly replied, "Yes it is," tossed in the window and drove off.

Thompson was tracked down days later and issued a ticket for disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, the Peoria Journal Star reported.

Where did Thompson get the dead squirrel for what he allegedly told Bartonville police was a "stupid prank?" He said a friend had left it in his car as a joke, police said.
