Man Arrested For Concealing Chicken In His Pants

Chicken cowboySounds like we have a new definition of concealed carry:

ROME, Ga, police say a man was arrested after he shoved a rotisserie chicken and two toothbrushes down his drawers and walked out of Walmart without paying:

Police say man concealed chicken in his pants…
…Police say the man left the store through its Garden Center with the items in his pants on Tuesday afternoon.

Floyd County Jail and Rome police reports state that 27-year-old Joseph Lee Stringer of Kingston was charged with shoplifting. The records say he was released on a $1,350 bond. 

 Stringer could not be reached by phone Wednesday, and it was not known whether he has an attorney.

Rome is about 70 miles northwest of Atlanta. Read the rest here.

Luckily for Stringer, he committed his crime in Georgia, and not in Connecticut, where I suspect he could have been penalized to the full extent of the law for not registering and licensing that poultry.

Writer does not condone shoplifting. But she does support gun rights. And chicken.
