Lettuce hope he at least got to finish his meal.
A wanted man in Tennessee was found "enjoying a bowl of salad" inside a closet in another person's home, McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy told WRCB.
Timothy Black, 54, was wanted in Monroe County on charges of shoplifting and theft over $1,000. An investigation led deputies to a home in McMinn County, where they say Black was hiding inside an unlit closet, with a bowl of salad in hand.
Sheriff Guy told WRCB that a responding deputy had to tell Black to put his fork down because it “could potentially be used as a weapon.”
Guy had a point —- in 2012, a Maryland woman was arrested on Thanksgiving after allegedly stabbing her half-brother with a serving fork.
And as the sheriff also noted, “At least he was eating healthy.” Some suspects are just not as nutrition-conscious, like the North Dakota burglar who broke into a woman’s home, microwaved some bacon, and pilfered three cans of beer.
Black was booked Oct. 10, according to the McMinn County Sheriff's office.
