Man Tries to Set a Gas Station on Fire Over Flamin’ Hot Cheetos
I mean, they're called flamin' hot for a reason.
Let the puns begin.
33-year-old Joshua Crook (apparently his occupation too) attempted to take a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos from a gas station in St. Louis, MO. According to KSDK-TV, the Cheeto Crook punched the clerk manager in the face after being confronted.
That's when situation got heated and Crook was fired up!
He went out to the pumps where he slammed one of them on the ground, allowing gasoline to spill out. He then threw a lit cigarette in the pool of gas attempting to start a fire. Thankfully, his attempt failed.
Crook was arrested and charged with first-degree arson, third-degree assault, theft of less than $500 and first-degree trespassing. Yes, all for a bag of Cheetos. But take a look at Crook's mugshot below and it will make sense.
[Unfortunately] There is no mention of what was going on at the time of the mugshot.
