LAKELAND, Fla. — A Florida man has been arrested and charged after a video was posted on Facebook of him sitting in the middle of the street eating pancakes, police said.
Kiaron Thomas, 21, was arrested as the flapjack-eating man on Friday, the Lakeland Police Department said.
Thomas was pictured sitting in the middle of a crosswalk while eating pancakes on a small TV table.
Police couldn’t locate Thomas when they arrived, but after video was posted to Facebook and shared with the police department, several people tagged Thomas, according to police.
