TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Talladega police arrested a man they say broke into a house naked and raided the kitchen for fried chicken.

Police told ABC 33/40 (https://bit.ly/1cdJHts ) 24-year-old George Leverous Bennett was found at a house near the Talladega County Jail eating fried chicken from Zaxby’s Tuesday. Investigators say Bennett, who was being held in the detention center for another charge, escaped and took off his clothes as he left.

An officer says he noticed a naked man walking away from the building wearing only tennis shoes, but couldn’t go after him because he had a prisoner in the car.

Investigators located Bennett after a woman called 911 to report a break-in. She and her three children fled the house.

Bennett is back in custody. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
