Man chooses jail over paying $1.57 for soda
A man in California caught stealing a soda was given a choice. Pay for the soda or leave.
Police responding to the report of a theft recently say the 27-year-old man appeared drunk. An employee told officers the man had taken a cup from the counter, filled it and began drinking.
The man who had $70 in his pocket refused to do either so the policeman cuffed him and hauled him off to prison.
That's a smart one.
