A night on the lam can really work up an appetite. The AP reports a hungry Arizona man stopped at In-N-Out in the middle of a police chase Wednesday night. Officers tried to pull over 35-year-old Joshua Adkins around 10:30pm for an outstanding warrant, but police say he refused to stop, according to the Arizona Republic. A police helicopter followed Adkins as he drove through Phoenix and two suburbs. KSAZ reports it even watched as Adkins went through an In-N-Out drive-thru and appeared to order food. Police say Adkins eventually got out of his vehicle and ran into a backyard. He was arrested after allegedly trying and failing to get into a home's backdoor. Adkins was booked into jail on suspicion of unlawful flight from law enforcement, domestic violence, and unlawful imprisonment. (More weird crimes stories.)
