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.
