COPS: Special Edition-Chuck E Cheese

Grab your cupcakes and pizza kids - there was a new LIVE show at Chuck E Cheese in Aurora, CO the other night. No, it wasn't the usual squeaky mechanical animals performing on stage last Sunday afternoon that caught customers attention, it was the man being tasered at the salad bar! Police were called to the Chuck E Cheese in the suburb of Denver when 29 year-old Danon Gale couldn't prove to a manager that he had paid for the trip to the salad bar after loading his plate like a hungry soldier. But he wasn't the only soldier there that night - the police showed up to take care of this serious situation. "All units - CODE 3 to the Chuck E Cheese salad bar" crackled over the police radio. When officers showed up, the stories start conflicting about what actually happened (you know, who pushed who first). But it all ended with the salad bandit getting tasered twice by the police, in front of his 3 and 7 year old kids as well as a full house of other children and families. Chuck E Cheese managers said, "When the police began tasering him, he really had some great moves and we're thinking about incorporating them into our live dance shows so kids can watch it again and again." Okay, they didn't really say that. In fact, they've hired an attorney and refused to comment. Maybe it's time to pick a new place for family entertainment.

Check out the full story of the salad bar tasering.

Oh my gosh Toby, that is so funny. That totally sounds like a typical CEC event from back in the days of working there! Ahh, the memories. Thanks for the news flash!

You know the fact that you've blogged about Chuck E Cheese more than once is a little disturbing. :P

There are a few things that come to mind:
1. I love to know that our law enforcement is taking things so seriously.
2. Have you heard Brian Regan's latest material?
"I want to Taser 7-year-olds!"

If you don't know this line, look it up on Youtube, you'll laugh.

3. I like the term "Salad Bandit." Sounds like a cohort of the Hamburgler.
