Arby's Bacon Thief Said He Was From the Future: Cops

If we were able to time-travel, our first pit stop in the past might aspire higher than fast food—but even time-travelers have to eat, and we bring you the case of Dante Rashad Anderson. The 36-year-old is being accused of robbery, assault and battery, and destruction of property after a confrontation at an Oklahoma City Arby's, WWMT reports. Anderson started screaming for food at a local Carl's Jr. on Friday, per employees; when his demands weren't met, he headed across the street to Arby's. There, an Arby's manager told cops, Anderson leaped over the counter and grabbed her, then scooped up some bacon and chicken before taking off.

A police sergeant says Anderson was "possibly under the influence of some sort of narcotic or intoxicant, or suffering from some type of break with reality" and that the suspect said he was "from four years in the future." Anderson, who one witness said "jumped up like he was Chuck Norris and just kicked the crap out of my car" after he left the Arby's, was found by cops on the ground in front of a nearby Tex-Mex eatery, at which point he informed the police that everyone on his home planet—Planet Earth 2020, per KOCO—was dead. "I was just hungry and wanted some food," he reportedly said. "I knew I was going to jail for doing this, but no one wants to help me out." (Maybe he wouldn't have been in the mood for Arby's if he had gone on Vegetarian Day.)
