Birthday cake attacked in Wash. courthouse

KELSO, Wash. (AP) — A woman in Washington state brought her child’s birthday cake into a courthouse, thinking that would be safer than leaving it in the car with her dog. She realized her error when a stranger grabbed and ate handfuls of the cake.

The chocolate cake passed through a metal detector and was sitting on a table when it was attacked.

Cake and frosting went flying when a Cowlitz County sheriff’s deputy grabbed the cake molester and took him to the ground. The Daily News of Longview (http://is.gd/OtNaHR ) says more deputies rushed to help Tuesday, only to end up smeared with frosting.

Deputy Joe Connor told KATU-TV that 50-year-old Robert Fredrickson was arrested for investigation of third-degree theft. The Daily News says the man had been on his way to a court appearance.

A local grocery offered to replace the cake.
