Robbery for White Castle Burgers

24 04 2008

This isn’t funny, but it sorta is.

Investigators say the fast-food drama started Wednesday night at the White Castle at Featherstone and Martin Luther King Blvd. in Pontiac when the pair, 16 and 17 years old, got impatient with the long wait in the drive thru.

“Instead of paying for their order, they decided to follow the vehicle ahead … with the intent of stealing the victims White Castle hamburgers,” investigators said in a statement. When the vehicle arrived at a home in Rochester Hills, the teens attacked.

According to investigators, the 17-year-old hit the driver with a hammer, pulled him out of the car, ordered him to empty his pockets, and took his wallet. At the same time, the 16-year-old yanked the passenger out and forced him to give up a his wallet, cell phone and Sony Play Station. The big haul, however, was a While Castle bag with 16 burgers and one chicken sandwich.

It’s obviously not funny that two teenagers would do this, but did anyone see last night’s South Park episode?
