Man Falls Through Waffle House Ceiling, Fights Customers, And Flees
Would you like some crazy with your breakfast?
That's just what Waffle House customers in Tuscumbia, Alabama got this week when a man came crashing down from the ceiling in the dining area.
No, he wasn't a maintenance worker or roofer... he was a thief! Or at least, he intended to be. The heist was clearly planned and prepared for, but the execution was severely lacking. Like, abysmally so.
According to Tuscumbia police, surveillance footage shows 27-year-old Wesley Glenn Bost going into the chain restaurant's bathroom, where he locked himself in, tied his jeans to the door, and climbed into the ceiling, breaking the sink and toilet in the process. They suspect he was trying to break into the office (presumably to steal money) but got turned around in the dark and found himself above the dining area instead. When he fell through, the chaos that ensued was captured in a now-viral video and shared on Facebook.
Bost fought desperately to get out of the restaurant, shoving customers and throwing himself at the blocked door several times. Eventually, fearing for everyone's safety, the crowd let him escape. As he fled the restaurant, he jumped into a waiting getaway car with an unknown accomplice and sped off.
So... that's it? What's the ending for the would-be waffle bandit? Unfortunately, he hasn't been caught yet. He and his accomplice were last seen around 11am Sunday in a wooded area near Avalon Park in Sheffield, Alabama (just 2 miles away from the scene of the crime). Tips can be phoned in to the Tuscumbia police at 256-383-3121, so if you see something, say something! Waffle House is a sacred temple of grease and syrup and she deserves justice. Only when Bost is caught will the people of America be able to eat waffles in peace again!
