A 21-year-old man told police he ate breakfast in a crosswalk at Memorial Boulevard and Brunnell Parkway as a prank, but they charged him with a misdemeanor after the incident was photographed and posted to Facebook. Hang on, Lakeland. This looks like another incident that keeps us on the weird news map. And it’s only a day after TV stations went nuts over the woman who paid for $11k in plastic surgery via stolen ID and credit card.
