Man Faces 5 Years For Stealing Cup Of Soda From McDonald's! He Ain't Loving It!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Naples man is facing five years behind bars after authorities say he walked out of a McDonald`s without paying for a $1 cup of soda.

Mark Abaire, 52, was arrested on a felony theft charge last week after he filled a courtesy cup with soda and left the fast food restaurant without paying, according to a Collier County Sheriff`s Office arrest report."


When the manager noticed that Abaire filled his courtesy cup with soda instead of water, he asked Abaire to pay for the soda. An augment ensued, the police were called, and Abaire was led away in handcuffs, all over a $1 cup of soda.

The dude`s first mistake wasn`t drinking a cup of soda he hadn`t paid for, it was drinking alcohol, he was inebriated when he walked through the Golden Arches.

His second mistake was sitting on a table, and sipping the soda instead of making a quick getaway.

His third mistake was his failure to simply say "My Bad" and pay for the soda when confronted by the manager.

Three strikes, and you`re out! Due to previous petty theft convictions, this joker was charged with a felony instead of a petty theft charge. This moron faces up to five years in jail and a $5,000 fine. He was also charged with trespassing, and disorderly intoxication.

That`s a very expensive cup of soda.
