FORT PIERCE, Fla., Aug. 12 (UPI) -- A Florida man was arrested after a struggle with police for allegedly stealing a pie and fried chicken from a grocery store, police said.

Patrick McCall, 44, was arrested in Fort Pierce Aug. 4 on three misdemeanor charges following the alleged theft at a Winn-Dixie grocery store, TCPalm.com reported Friday.

A Winn-Dixie store manager told police he suspected McCall stole food from the deli area of the store, but said when he asked the alleged thief to show him what he was carrying in a couple of five gallon buckets, McCall refused.

McCall left the store and was stopped by police officers as he exited the parking lot. An officer noted McCall was eating a "fruit filled pie," and carrying two of five gallon buckets. Police found two pieces of fried chicken wrapped in a Winn-Dixie bag in one of the buckets.

The suspect told police he brought the pie and chicken from home, but officers found a discarded $1.69 pie box nearby.
