PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (PIX11) – Clad in just shorts and white socks, a man in Maryland went to jail over two lollipops, authorities said.
Workers at a Subway restaurant in Prince Frederick, Md., noticed James Dean Wirick walking in and out of the store, without a shirt or shoes, about 1:30 p.m. June 6, according to Capt. Bobby Jones, with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office.
The workers called 911 to report a suspicious subject and when deputies arrived, they found that Wirick had allegedly stuffed two Blow Pop lollipops into his shorts without paying for them first.
He appeared intoxicated, the responding deputy noted in a report.
When the deputy tried to take him into custody, Wirick allegedly lashed out, cursing and acting in a “disorderly manner” in front of the subway shop patrons.
The 50-year-old Wirick was charged with theft and disorderly conduct, Jones said.
