This Story Is Full of Holes

Bradley Hardison, 24, ate eight doughnuts in two minutes, thus winning a doughnut eating contest at the Elizabeth City (N.C.) Police Department’s National Night Out Against Crime event. An officer joked that Hardison did so well that he must have been a cop, and not a local contractor as he claimed. He also suggested Hardison should come to the station for a job application. The next day, Hardison was arrested in his mother’s home for outstanding warrants for felony larceny, and breaking and entering. A sheriff’s spokesman says the arrest one day after the contest was a “coincidence.” (MS/Elizabeth City Daily Advance) ...No one likes a sore loser — or coincidences.
Story Update: See more news about Hardison in Volume 24, “Addicted.”
