This week, a Florida man was given a ticket for eating the most important meal of the day at arguably the worst possible place.

On March 21, Lakeland Police Department officers were notified of a man eating pancakes at the intersection of Memorial Boulevard and Brunnell Parkway.

According to LPD, “the caller reported that the subject was sitting in a chair with a small ‘television’ table in front of him and eating something like pancakes.”

The officers were able to locate the man after he was tagged in a video that later appeared on Facebook. The pancake eater, 21-year-old Kiaron Thomas, was found at his residence, which was just 100 yards from the intersection.

Although Thomas told the officers it was a prank, he was charged with obstructing the road and disrupting traffic.
