WASHINGTON, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- A woman in Washington D.C. faced charges of theft after reportedly stealing french fries from a police officer's plate at a local restaurant.
According to Fox 5, two women, whom the officer believed to be intoxicated, approached his table to begin a conversation when one began to eat fries from his plate.
"I then politely asked D-1 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 officer wrote in a police report.
The woman responded by saying, "well then you might as well take me to jail," before taking a third fry.
She was then arrested for second degree theft with the stolen property listed as "French Fried Potato . . . quantity 3," the Washington Post reported.
"The listed offender appropriated the listed property without the consent of the listed complainant," the police report stated.
