A 21-year-old man faces charges after eating breakfast in the middle of an intersection.
Kiaron Thomas was sitting in a folding chair with a small table in the crosswalk of Memorial Boulevard and Brunnell Parkway in Lakeland, Florida. In the video, cars and trucks pass by Thomas, while he dines on a pancake. It appears that there are eggs and bacon on his plate, and a bottle of syrup on the table.
A video was posted to Facebook, and Thomas was tagged in it. Thomas lives close by the intersection, according to police. The man admitted he did it as a prank, but still has been charged with placing an obstruction in the roadway and disrupting the free flow of traffic. He will be in court next month.
The Lakeland Police Department’s Facebook post has attracted more than 800 shares, 350 comments and 450 reactions. Many of the people commenting say that the video is funny and the man should not get more than slap on the wrist.
