Hot Dog Dispute Lands Man In Jail

Police say a North Carolina man rammed his car into a hot dog stand when the vendor refused to sell him a hot dog and drink for a dollar.

23-year-old David Kelbaugh of Rolesville was charged Wednesday with assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run, driving while intoxicated and injury to property. Police say Kelbaugh was drinking at a bar in Cary early Wednesday when he left to order food at the hot dog stand.

Kelbaugh asked for a hot dog and a drink for one dollar and the vendor told him that wasn't enough money.

The vendor was treated for back injuries. His name was not released.

Kelbaugh fled and was later arrested. He's been released on $6,000 bond. A phone number for Kelbaugh was disconnected.

    Unless he was sponging off everyone else that was in the bar, I assume he was paying for the alcohol he drank while in there. He has a major problem if he would rather get intoxicated and spend all his money on alcohol rather than food.

    WHY RELEASE HIM? $6,000 BOND?? This is precisely the problem in this country - criminals are set free after arrest, instead of being put to death, as they deserve.

    Children also don't drive cars. It doesn't say he rammed his ten speed into the guy.

    Somebody should have fronted this pinging dopey a couple of bucks to keep him out of trouble.

    Another fine, upstanding youngster that decided to do what children do best: If he doesn't get his way, he pitches a fit and destroys whatever is in front of him. Another great example that provides further evidence why we should be very concerned about the next generation of children.

    Things like this never happened when Bush was in office.
