    Default Man accused of using water cup to drink soda at McDonald's charged with felony

    Man accused of using water cup to drink soda at McDonald's charged with felony






    Naples Daily News staff report

    NAPLES, Fla. - A Naples, Florida man is facing a felony charge after he was accused of walking out of the McDonald’s without paying for a cup of soda.

    After filling a courtesy cup with soda Thursday at the McDonald’s soda fountain and then leaving the restaurant, Mark Abaire, 52, was arrested by Collier deputies and now faces a felony theft charge, a sheriff’s report shows.

    A manager told sheriff’s deputies that Abaire entered the store and asked for a glass of water around 10 p.m. Although the employee told him the cup was for water, Abaire filled it with soda at a fountain machine and sat outside the restaurant, according to an arrest report.

    During a conversation with the manager, Abaire declined to pay for the soda, valued at $1, refused to leave the premises, and cursed at the manager, the report stated.

    While his charge is petty theft, because of previous petty theft convictions, the charge for drinking the unpaid-for soda was increased from a misdemeanor to a felony, the arrest report shows.

    In Florida, a third-degree felony can result in a sentence of up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

    Abaire faces additional misdemeanor counts of trespassing and disorderly intoxication. On Saturday, he remained in the Collier County jail with bond set at $6,500.

    Sounds a bit like it.

    And you've been so busy lately
    that you haven't found the time
    To open up your mind
    And watch the world spinning gently out of time
