Police in St. Petersburg, Florida, arrested a 47-year-old hot dog seller after he attacked officers with food.

The incident occurred in the 200 block of Central Avenue early morning on July 2, according to reporting from KHON-TV and WTVT-TV.

Officers had approached New Port Richey resident Jason Stoll to warn him that his street closure permit to sell hot dogs in the area had ended.

However, Stoll did not listen to the officers’ warning.

Police asked him to put down a hot dog he had. However, Stoll, according to WTVT-TV, continued to try to sell it.
