Can fast food be addictive?
The behavior of the guy who is the subject of the article below is certainly reminiscent of someone who has an addiction problem--or at least has some serious problems with self control.
Wow! This guy REALLY likes french fries!
Man Pleads Guilty in French Fries Rage
Monday, April 25, 2005
DuBOIS, Pa. - A man who angrily berated fast-food employees when a drive-thru clerk told him the restaurant was out of french fries pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 45 days in jail.
Gregg Luttman, of DuBois, pleaded guilty to assault, resisting arrest, institutional vandalism and other charges stemming from the confrontation on New Year's Day at a Burger King restaurant.
Luttman made an obscene gesture at a drive-thru clerk, cursed at restaurant staff and nearly hit an employee with his truck after workers told Luttman the restaurant had run out of french fries and onion rings, said police in Sandy Township, Clearfield County.
When police tried to arrest Luttman, he scuffled with officer and kicked out the back window of a police cruiser, police said.
In addition to jail time, Luttman last week was fined $150 and ordered to serve two years' probation.
