Police say man offered Krispy Kreme doughnuts to officers for his freedom

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Freshly iced doughnuts roll by on a conveyor belt at the Krispy Kreme store in Winston-Salem, the town where Krispy Kreme was born.

FREDERICK, Md. >> Police in Maryland say a man who was being detained told officers he worked at Krispy Kreme and would give them doughnuts if they would let him go.

Sgt. Jonathan Shatlock tells The Frederick News-Post 25-year-old Matthew Tyler Rosenberg and another man were spotted Thursday by an officer who suspected they were peering into vehicles for anything worth stealing.

Charging documents state the officer ordered them to stop, but Rosenberg began walking away. They say a struggle ensued and an officer kneed Rosenberg in the abdomen before he was subdued.

Authorities say a search of Rosenberg yielded an air pistol and marijuana. It was then that Rosenberg began offering officers doughnuts.

Rosenberg faces charges including resisting arrest. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer. The other man wasn’t charged.
