Snack Attack: Guy Gives Cops the Best Reason Ever for Stealing Bacon From Arby's

Dante Anderson is not from around here.

Published April 20, 2016

A man in Oklahoma City was arrested after walking into several different fast food restaurants demanding food. His first stop was an Arby's, where he jumped over the counter and forced a female employee against a wall before grabbing fists full of chicken nuggets and bacon. But the man claims he has a good reason for stealing the snacks: he traveled here from four years in the future and the time travel journey made him hungry.

KOCO reports that the assaulted Arby's employee told police that Dante Rashad Anderson walked into the kitchen, grabbed her by the arm and forced her against a wall. Anderson grabbed a handful of chicken nuggets and bacon before leaving and broke the restaurant's front door as he left.

He then walked through a busy intersection, kicking cars as he passed. When police caught up with him, Anderson was lying in the parking lot of yet another fast food joint. While being questioned by police, Anderson explained that he just wanted food because he was hungry and nobody was helping him.

"I got bacon and chicken and I scared the lady," Anderson reportedly said. "She thought I was going to hurt her, but I was not. I was just hungry and wanted some food. That is what I have to do to get food...I knew I was going to jail for doing this, but no one wants to help me out."

Anderson also reportedly told police that he was from the future. "I am four years advanced on you, and you guys are always trying [to] kill me," he said. "On my planet Earth, everyone is dead and I walked here from there."

Oklahoma City Police Master Sergeant Gary Knight told KOCO that Anderson "was possibly under the influence of some sort of narcotic or intoxicant or suffering some type of break with reality."

Anderson was taken to a nearby hospital first to be treated for minor injuries before being booked at the local county jail and is being accused of robbery, assault and battery and destruction of property.
