Police in Arkansas say a man attempted to hold up a convenience store using a pair of hot dog tongs.

Witnesses say, 35-year-old Renee Jackson, who was visibly intoxicated, grabbed the tongs from the store’s food counter and threatened the clerk and customers for money.

Apparently no one took him seriously and he sat outside the store waiting for police to arrive.

He told officers he wanted to go to jail to see how his family did without him because they did not appreciate him.
