Guess he figured he wasn't leaving without something.


A man enters a New Orleans Popeye's Chicken and attempts to rob the cash register when he is unable to get it open he steals some food instead.

It's being reported that on Monday morning 27-year-old Phillip Lee tried to steal the money from the register, but when it wouldn't open, Lee grabbed some fried chicken and fled the store.

Lee was later arrested by New Orleans Police a short time later. He is now being held on charges of simple robbery and simple battery.

With a bond set at $13,500, it is unknown whether or not he has an attorney to represent him and comment on his behalf.
