(Newser) – Pity poor Thomas Bacon, who is grabbing headlines for what might be a mundane arrest—were it not for his last name and the role sausage allegedly plays in the story. reports the 19-year-old has been charged with simple assault in connection with a May 12 incident. Police were called to his Madison home, where, some time before 3:30am, Bacon had allegedly assaulted another person there who had eaten the last piece of breakfast sausage. Madison Patch reports the alleged victim didn't need medical care. Bacon was released on his own recognizance, per the Daily Record. (Bizarrely, in the same vein: an alleged crime involving bacon and an unfortunate last name.)
