Man with dirty face arrested following Burger King incident

A man with a noticeably dirty face was arrested after an incident at a Burger King in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday. An intoxicated Jamie Henson, 36, placed an order at the International Drive store just before 3:20am but ran away before getting his food, according to his arrest report.

The Orlando man pushed BK's door open with such force, it came off the hinges. An officer responding to a vandalism/criminal mischief call found a man later identified as Henson standing in the centre lane of International Drive while talking on a cellphone. As the officer approached, he could overhear Henson saying ' "the police are here" and he had to get off the phone." '

Henson ran from the officer, who caught him after a roughly 100-foot chase. "No force was used to detain Henson and no injuries were sustained by myself or Henson,'' Officer Matthew Davis said in his report. Then Henson appeared in his booking photo at the Orange County Jail with dirt on his face.

How he got so grimy wasn't addressed in the report. Burger King said Henson caused $500 in damage. "I was able place the door back on the hinges but noticed there was still damage to the hinges and closing mechanism," Davis said. Henson was charged with criminal mischief and resisting an officer without violence.
