A Maryland woman was arrested for theft Wednesday after allegedly stealing three french fries from a D.C. police officer, police said.

About 9:40 p.m., a D.C. police officer was eating in a restaurant at 1110 U St. NW when a 26-year-old woman approached him and ate one of his french fries, a D.C. police spokesman said. Despite repeated warnings, the woman continued to eat the french fries, police said.

She was arrested for second-degree theft.

As a police report explained: “The listed offender appropriated the listed property without the consent of the listed complainant.”

The report also listed the stolen property as “French Fried Potato . . . quantity 3.”
