Want fried with that?
ST. CLOUD, Minn. — St. Cloud police say an intoxicated man broke into a Pizza Hut and started frying up a batch of boneless chicken wings.
An alarm brought out officers who found a door open at the downtown restaurant just before 1:30 a.m. Friday.
Inside, police found a 21-year-old man trying to deep-fry some boneless chicken wings in the kitchen. Investigators say the man also had thrown marinara sauce on the wall.
A breath sample found the man registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.22 percent, nearly three times the legal limit for driving in Minnesota.
The man was taken to jail. The Star Tribune reports he works at the restaurant.

A 21-year-old man drove his car into a Bob Evans restaurant early Tuesday, causing $10,000 in damage, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Richard Brent Grimes backed his car about 12:16 a.m. into the Bob Evans at 1600 U.S. 19 in Holiday, said Sgt. Steve Gaskins, spokesman for FHP. Authorities were called after Grimes reversed his car into the building, Gaskins said.
The restaurant was closed and no one was injured, said Scott Devries, a Bob Evans district manager. He said the impact was on the south side of the building. He said the car didn’t go through the wall into the restaurant but came close.
“We’re just glad everybody is safe,” Devries said. The restaurant reopened Tuesday afternoon, he said.

WARREN, Mich. — Warren police said a man has been charged after he told a store clerk he didn’t have to pay for cigarettes because he was a king.
Joseph Lawrence Borowiak is charged with strong-arm robbery and resisting arrest after being accused of threatening a 7-Eleven store clerk on Saturday.
Police said Borowiak went into the store on Schoenherr and 12 Mile roads at about 6:30 a.m. and asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes.
Borowiak told the clerk he wasn’t going to pay for the cigarettes because he was a king and didn’t have to, police said.
He tried to grab the cigarettes, swung at the clerk and then ran out, police said.
A witness in the store was able to direct police to the area where Borowiak had last been seen walking.
Police said he did not immediately surrender when they found him in front a funeral home further down Schoenherr Road and officers used a Taser on him to quell him.
Police said Borowiak has a criminal history that includes a cocaine possession conviction.
OKLAHOMA CITY —
Oklahoma City police said one man is behind a slew of missing toilet parts in metro restaurants.Investigators said the man has been caught on tape stealing electronic toilet flushers.Officers said he’s struck at restaurants such as Applebee’s, Hideaway Pizza, Golden Corral and Taco Bell.Patrons said they wonder what the man is doing with all the equipment.”Well, I go to the restroom all the time anyway because I’m pregnant,” Tish Howard said.She said the strange crimes are rather unsettling.”You can’t flush the toilet — that’s embarrassing and odd,” Howard said.Detectives said several of the restaurants have surveillance video of the man walking out of their businesses with his coat heavy with equipment.Investigators said the man will normally walk into a restaurant, ask to use the restroom, steal what he can and then walk right out.Police said the confusing crime is costing businesses bundles, and managers can’t afford to watch their profits take a plunge.

The Beat Cop’s Guide and Lake Claremont Press wish to extend our deepest thanks and a loud shout out to our great friend, Mary Jane Vodicka, a visiting aunt from Lubeck, Germany, who used to live in Rogers Park, and now chows down at a Thai joint in Lubeck called Yam Yam and the Nudelkontor for pasta.

Hard to say. We know, from being overly sophisticated cinema freaks, that all actors and crew eat at the craft services table, a mythical lardon containing Snicker Bars, M&Ms, vegan chili, Kool-aid, those prosciutto wrapped asparagus things, and Ho Hos by the vat.
But judging by the cut-aways, they least camped out by:
Harold’s Chicken, at 7310 S. Halsted.
David’s Grill, 800 W Cermak Rd
and the Fireside Bowl, known for delivering Schlitz and giving good signage.
I’m an unabashed fan of this new cop show. Not only does it feature shot after luxurious shot of Chicago from all sides, not only does it have awesome characters, not only does it have great action and suspense—it has great dialogue. Like this nugget from Det. Wiasocky, asking his partner to figure out who their suspect really was.
“Is he a fan of the great game of baseball, or is he a cubbies lover?”
I may be a dirty northside Cubs fan, but I love that line.
Grimy punk bands for an extra charge.
No, wait—I wanted a dragon!
An inmate serving a life sentence for molesting and murdering a 10-year-old girl named Katie was apparently forcibly tattooed across the forehead by a fellow prisoner with the words “KATIE’S REVENGE,” authorities say. Anthony Ray Stockelman, 39, was removed from the general prison population for his own safety last weekend after authorities discovered the tattoo, officials said.
Prison officials said an inmate has been identified as a suspect.
“If I had to guess I’d say it’s a statement from the inmates,” said [Katie] Collman’s father, John Neace.
Wha? I askled for a dragon!
