New Delhi: A United States woman was arrested by a police officer last week for apparently trying to steal three pieces of French fries while pretending to strike up a conversation with him.

According to the police officer, he was dining at the Italian Pizza Kitchen in Washington DC on Wednesday when a woman approached him trying to start a casual conversation with him.

The irksome matter for the police officer came when the woman reached out on the table and ate some of his French Fries.

“I then politely asked D-1 to not do that again because I paid for that food and she was stealing from me and she could be arrested for theft of my food,” said the officer.

The woman then replied, “Well, then you might as well take me to jail.” Saying that, she reached out for another fry.

The agitated officer then arrested the woman on the charge of second-degree theft.
