Police: Man steals pizza, balloons from child's birthday party

SEATTLE -- A 28-year-old man invaded an 8-year-old's birthday party Wednesday at Green Lake, ate multiple pieces of pizza, and stole two balloon animals, according to the Seattle Police Department. The man was superfluously described by police as "very high."

According to police, the shirtless, shoeless man sat down at a table of children shortly before 6 p.m. and proceeded to eat their pizza and steal their balloon animals.

He refused parents' requests to leave and got into a heated exchange with several families, according to police.

Officers reportedly arrived to find the man lying in the grass near the wading pool and under the influence of some kind of potent relaxant.

According to police, the man tried to walk away from officers when they offered to take him to a hospital and was arrested. He was booked into King County Jail for investigation of theft.

This crime reporter would like to take a moment to remind the 8-year-old victim that while pizza and balloon animals come and go, memories of a super-high man crashing your birthday party last a lifetime.
