Cory Mogen caught breaking into Pizza Hut, frying up some wings while drunk
Cory Mogen really wanted some Pizza Hut.
So much that it didn't matter that it was hours after the shop had closed. Nor did it matter that the 21-year-old was absolutely wasted.
He was going to satisfy the craving--and he knew right where to go: Mogen's an employee of the Pizza Hut where he was arrested early this morning after police found him inside the business, frying up some chicken wings.
"They booked him and held him on burglary," says St. Cloud Police Sgt. Martin Sayer, noting that the student has yet to be charged. "Today would be his first court appearance."
Officers first got a call that the Pizza Hut's alarm had been tripped at about 1:25 a.m., according to police.
When police got to the scene, the back door of the restaurant was open. Mogen had already made a mess throwing around marinara sauce. He had also "attempted to fry" some boneless wings.
Maybe the trouble was his blood-alcohol level. Police say he blew a .22 into the Breathalyzer, and that was with a "weak breath."
The 21-year-old was booked in Stearns County Jail after his arrest on suspicion of third-degree burglary.
