Those KFC #iatethebones commercials have probably gone too far.

Monday, at 3:55 a.m., a man who could have been battling rage and confusion simultaneously due to maybe eating the bone or not went to exact his revenge on the fried chicken food chain location at 2701 Yale. According to Houston Police Department public information officer Jodi Silva, the suspect had gotten into the restaurant from the roof.

"The business had an alarm go off, so our officers went out," Silva told Hair Balls. "At that point, they saw the suspect inside the restaurant, so they set up a perimeter. A K-9 got on site and indicated that the suspect had fled up onto the roof."

With the showdown going to the roof, HPD called upon the Houston Fire Department for assistance. They brought in a ladder and got to the man, who was taken into custody.

"He is in custody," the HPD PIO said. "He's got pending charges [of] burglary, nonresidential."

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
