KELSO, Wash. - A woman in Washington state brought her child's birthday cake into a courthouse, thinking that would be safer than leaving it in the car with her dog. She realized her error when a stranger grabbed and ate handfuls of the cake.
The chocolate cake passed through a metal detector and was sitting on a table when it was attacked.
Cake and frosting went flying when a Cowlitz County sheriff's deputy grabbed the cake molester and took him to the ground. The Daily News of Longview says more deputies rushed to help Tuesday, only to end up smeared with frosting.
Deputy Joe Connor said that 50-year-old Robert Fredrickson was arrested for investigation of third-degree theft, KATU-TV reported. The Daily News says the man had been on his way to a court appearance.
A local grocery offered to replace the cake.
