(Newser) – Doughnuts and arrests appear to be inextricably linked in the life of North Carolina man Bradley Hardison. The 27-year-old—who was arrested in 2014 after he won the doughnut-eating contest at the Elizabeth City Police Department's National Night Out Against Crime event, helping officers who'd been seeking him in connection with two felony burglaries track him down—has been charged with robbing a doughnut shop, the Virginian-Pilot reports. Police in Elizabeth City say Hardison, who became champ by eating eight glazed doughnuts in under two minutes, has been charged with offenses including felony breaking and entering and felony safe-cracking in connection with a burglary at a Dunkin' Donuts in November. It's not clear whether Hardison helped himself to any doughnuts during the alleged crime, the AP reports. (Read more North Carolina stories.)
