Lehigh University student Terez Owens, 20, was charged with criminal mischief and disorderly conduct after breaking into his buddy’s apartment a few blocks away from campus, according to The Smoking Gun. The 6-foot-2, 310-pound Owens reportedly spilled sweet and sour chicken and sesame chicken all over the floor — cutting himself in the process — while pouring the food into what cops described in a police report as a “man purse.”
Police said he had cut himself while breaking a window and a door to enter the apartment and subsequently ended up bleeding all over the floor.
His friends, who are also students at Lehigh, initially decided against pressing charges. They changed their mind when they realized they would be responsible for a $495 repair bill.
Owens, who played on the school football team, apparently has a criminal past that includes theft or receiving stolen property but the charges were later dropped. More recently, he was allegedly cited in August for purchasing alcohol as a minor.
