JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A former KFC employee ran afoul of the law after Jonesboro police say he flew the coop with a bucket of chicken wings.

On Wednesday afternoon, 18-year-old Christian J. Neal was fired from his job at KFC/Taco Bell, 2003 Parker Road.

Following his dismissal Neal grabbed a 36-piece bucket of chicken wings and ran out of the store, according to the initial incident report.

Police found him a short time later in the stock room of Big Lots, 1907 Woodsprings, still dressed in his KFC uniform, and arrested him for theft.

While escorting Neal to his patrol car, the arresting officer found the bucket of chicken wings near the Big Lots entrance.
