Eating on the run can lead to indigestion. Eating on the lam can get you arrested, especially if you leave a trail of curly fries behind you.

Police in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania followed a trail of curly fries to nab a suspect, according to NBC New York. A female employee of fast-food chain Arby’s called the cops to announce that a man, who appeared to be intoxicated, had groped her through the drive-thru window as she handed over his order, including the incriminating curly fries. The woman gave the cops a description of the man’s car, and presumably, his food order. Police were able to track car to the parking lot of a nearby motel.

Police then followed a trail of Arby’s curly fries and sauce from the parked car to the hotel room of 36-year-old James Cowan of Fitzgerald, Ga. Cowan, who was believed to be intoxicated at the time, was taken into custody without incident and charged with a single count of indecent assault, according to court records. No word on whether he was able to finish his curly fries before being taken to central booking.
