Can you believe a man got sent to jail for stealing a coke?Stealing soda from a McDonald's is a felony offense. Mark Abaire was charged with swiping Coca-Cola from the McDonald's fountain machine.
The cashier gave him an empty cup for "water", but Mark filled it with Coke. At most, the soda was worth a buck. However, because of Mark's long criminal record (quote) "the charge for drinking the unpaid soda was increased from a misdemeanor to a felony."
