Of all the bizarre arrest reports in recent memory, this one might just take the cake.
Forgive us for the goofy pun because the story involves a 50-year-old Washington man being arrested for digging his hand into a 9-year-old girl’s birthday cake. At a courthouse. In front of multiple law enforcement officials.
The girl’s mother had brought the cake into the Cowlitz County Hall of Justice because she didn’t want to leave it in the car with her dog. And so she carried a Disney princess-themed cake into a courthouse rather than, you know, wait until after her court errand was complete and then pick up a birthday cake from the grocer.
But never mind that bizarre little detail. The fact is that there was a cake sitting on a table just after the court’s x-ray scanner checkpoint. Enter 50-year-old bizarro man Robert Fredrickson who began grabbing handfuls of the sweet treat. When an officer confronted him, he returned to the table and grabbed some more, because why not. And then he was arrested.
All of it was caught on camera. Watch below, via KATU-TV:
