LAKELAND, Fla. (WISH) — Don’t eat pancakes in the roadway. It’s a message Florida police are sending after they say a man did just that.
Kiaron Thomas, 21, faces preliminary charges of placing an obstruction in the roadway and disrupting the free flow of traffic after police say he enjoyed a plate of pancakes in the middle of the street.
Photos shared by the Lakeland Police Department on Facebook show the shirtless Thomas wearing pajama pants and sitting in front of a small table with pancakes and syrup.
Police say officers were called to the unusual scene on Tuesday morning. When confronted, Thomas admitted he pulled the stunt as a prank.
“Thomas’s actions prevented vehicles from moving and created an obstruction,” the department wrote on Facebook.
He’s scheduled to appear in court April 25.
