“All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi and she wouldn’t give it to me!”

While it can be agonizing to have an urge and not be able to fulfill it, it’s called life people.

Some will go to great lengths, to achieve their desires, even if it means getting stuck in a man-eating, gold digger of a machine.

He’s just a kid, which sure as hell doesn’t keep us from laughing at the one who actually does what most of us fantasize about doing when walking by that damn sugar haven.

Ah, the blossoming stage of theft, so entertaining for us Jack folk.

On Saturday morning a 17-year-old teenager in National City, Ca attempted to steal a soda out of a vending machine.

The pipsqueak reached his arm into the slot of the vending machine near a trolley station. A trolley passenger witnessed his arm stuck in the vending machine. The police were then called when it was known that he was trapped.

Police, firefighters, paramedics and trolley security all arrived to relieve the juvenile delinquent from his self-inflicted, temporary immobile situation.

Axes, crowbars and an air chisel were all used to free his arm from the machine. Despite the unnecessary hype, the rescue crew ended up freeing the kid by sawing the lock on the machine door, with a rotary saw. He was treated for scrapes and soreness to his arm from his attempts to free his criminal arm.

He was taken into police custody, where he might be charged with petty theft. On top of it, he never even made contact with that measly coca cola can that caused such an uproar. Too bad, so sad.
