LAKELAND, Fla. - A man's desire to eat pancakes in the middle of the road got him in trouble with the police.

On Monday, Lakeland Police Department received a call that a man was sitting in the middle of a crosswalk eating pancakes on a small TV table. He was disrupting the flow of traffic by causing an obstruction.

Police came to the area, yet the man had left prior to their arrival. A video of the incident was posted on Facebook and the police were able to track down 21-year-old Kiaron Thomas as the flapjack-eating man.

Thomas admitted he ate the pancakes in the middle of the road as a prank.

Thomas was charged with obstruction in the roadway and disrupting the free flow of traffic. He will appear in court for the pancake prank in April.
