A Florida man faces a felony charge after refusing to pay $1 for a cup of soda at an East Naples McDonald’s restaurant.
The local manager told the sheriff’’s department, Mark Abaire filled a courtesy cup with soda and walked out of the establishment without paying. A McDonald’s employee had told Abaire the cup was only for water, but Abaire filled it with soda at the fountain machine, then went outside.
As the Naples News reported, the police report stated the manager had asked Abaire to pay but he refused, then proceeded to curse at the manager and refused to leave the premises.
After deputies arrested Abaire, the initial charge of petty theft was raised to felony charges due to Abaire’s record of prior theft convictions and Florida’s ‘three strikes’ statute.
