Cops arrest man who wins police department doughnut-eating contest

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. — A North Carolina man celebrated out-eating some police officers, only to find out that he couldn't outrun them.

The Camden County Sheriff's Office had been looking for 24-year-old Bradley Herbert Hardison of Elizabeth City in connection with two break-ins.

Authorities arrested Hardison on Wednesday, one day after he won the adult division of a doughnut-eating contest at the Elizabeth City Police Department's National Night Out Against Crime. Hardison ate eight doughnuts in two minutes, beating a group that included local police officers and firefighters.

In addition to the Camden County charges, Hardison is charged in Pasquotank County with felony larceny and breaking and entering. It's not known whether he has an attorney.
