If I wrote this in a book, it wouldn't make it past my editor

From the files of this is the too real to be fiction, a man gets arrested in the grocery store only wearing peanut butter and chocolate. 

This is not a scene from my latest book, this is true.

Here's what Charlotte's WCNC is reporting:

Kentucky State Trooper D. B. White said a manager of the Food World IGA in Neon arrived at work last week to find 22-year-old Andrew Allen Michael Toothman wearing only the confections and a pair of black boots.
Court documents say Toothman is accused of smearing peanut butter around the store, discharging fire extinguishers and using bottles of NyQuil to spell out the word "sorry," according to The Mountain Eagle in Whitesburg.
White called it "the biggest mess I have seen."
Toothman is charged with burglary, criminal mischief and indecent exposure. He is being held at the Letcher County jail where records do not indicate whether he has an attorney.
I'm all for using food to set the mood, a little whipped cream and chocolate makes for a great love scene -- but in the local supermarket? Umm, no!

I just wonder if this was running through his mind.
