50-year-old Robert Eric Fredrickson behaved more like a 5-year-old earlier this week after he allegedly wolfed down a handful birthday cake belonging to a little girl.
The Daily News Online reported that Michelle Flavin brought her 9-year-old’s birthday cake into the Cowlitz County Hall of Justice to help her sister with a legal matter. Flavin was afraid of leaving the cake in her car because she thought her dog would dig in after they left. As soon as the cake made it through the metal detector, Fredrickson — who apparently has less self control than a dog — is said to have helped himself to a handful of cake.
“I got pissed when he stuck his hand in it the first time,” Flavin said. “I was like, ‘Hey!’”
A deputy working at the time told him to stop but Fredrickson supposedly went back for seconds, shoving another handful of cake in his mouth. That’s when the deputy tackled Fredrickson and arrested him on the spot. The cake, unfortunately, was ruined in the struggle, but Safeway stepped in and offered to replace it.
Fredrickson is sitting in jail right now for sticking his hand into a 9-year-old’s birthday cake and fighting with a cop. If he’s smart, he’ll leave the cake part of his crime out when he’s chatting it up with the other inmates.
