(Newser) – It’s weird enough that Donald Noone, 65, was arrested for attempting to smuggle a rack of ribs out of a grocery store in his pants yesterday. What’s weirder is that the central Pennsylvania man had already been arrested for attempting the same stunt in May, the Sentinel reports. This time around, the ribs were worth $20.48; last time, just $13.34. Both times, police say Noone was “highly intoxicated” during the incident.

Not only is this Noone’s second retail theft charge regarding ribs, it’s also his sixth public drunkenness citation in fewer than five months. The previous citations involved him falling off the sidewalk and into traffic; passing out on the front porch of a home in the middle of the afternoon; and arguing with a group of men at 2:20am, among other things.
