Police: Floridian, 47, ignored their order to “put the hot dog down”
“JULY 4–A Florida Man is facing a felony battery charge for allegedly striking a cop with a thrown hot dog, according to court records.”
Stoll, however, “ignored the warnings and continued to sell hot dogs in the roadway after the street closure permit ended,” an officer noted in an arrest affidavit.
“The defendant was asked to put the hot dog down as he continued his attempt to sell it,” reported Officer Anthony Bragano. When directed to drop the hot dog, Stoll reportedly became “extremely upset” and threw the item–which is not a sandwich–at a uniformed patrolman.”
“The hot dog hit the cop, who was not injured by the airborne bun and beef.”
