Man led police on chase to jail in different county because the food is better there

An at-large parolee apparently had food on the brain as he sped away from police in Sacramento, California and drove straight to the Placer County Jail, where he stepped out of the car and surrendered.

When an officer asked the man why he drove all the way to that specific jail, which sits in Auburn - about 35 miles from Sacramento - the suspect answered that "the food is better here," according to the Placer County Sheriff's Department.

The man, 51-year-old Mark Royal, led officials on the chase starting at around 11:30pm on Tuesday, the Sheriff's Department said. The Sacramento Police Department asked Placer County deputies for assistance as Royal tore down Interstate 80 heading east.

He finally pulled over and gave up at the jail, where he was arrested. After questioning Royal, officers put him in the back of their patrol car and drove him to the Sacramento County Jail.
