Police in New Orleans have a suspect in custody who must " Love that chicken from Popeyes". Well, that's kind of an assumption because they do say the robber, Phillip Lee, entered a Popeyes restaurant on Chef Mentuer Highway on Monday and first attempted to make off with cash from the register.

After he was unable to get the register to cooperate, police say Lee just grabbed some chicken and fled the scene. Since it was New Orleans and it was Popeyes and it was around Noon there were several witnesses who corroborated Lee's struggle to get to the cash.

I would imagine operating those keys with chicken grease on your fingers would be tough even if you weren't trying to commit a crime. Regardless, Lee was apprehended and is facing simple robbery and battery charges.
