Man arrested with live lobster in shorts

A man in southern Mississippi, US, was accused of trying to walk out of a D’Iberville grocery store without paying for food items he had stuffed into his cargo shorts, including live lobsters.

Police Chief Wayne Payne says 35-year-old Nathan Mark Hardy was arrested after allegedly being caught stuffing food into his cargo shorts — two bags of jumbo shrimp, a pork loin and two live lobsters.

Payne says Hardy, of Biloxi, tried to escape by throwing the pork loin at employees at the local Winn Dixie but fell while running away. He was arrested at the scene.

The shoplifting charge is a misdemeanour, but Hardy remained jailed in the Harrison County jail with no bond pending a hearing on a probation violation.
