Pantsless McDonald's employee attacks cop in DeLand




Twenty-one-year-old Ryan Wolf smirks in his mug shot as if he's committed crimes on par with Dillinger or Pretty Boy Floyd, but the fact of the matter is this McDonald's employee was booked Saturday for trying to choke out a cop who dared inquire why he was lying in the middle of a DeLand street sans pants. The deputy in question wasn't hurt and "utilized a takedown technique, which escorted [the suspect] to the ground" (what a polite way to put it). Wolf's motives for letting it all hang loose in public remain unclear, aside from the fact that Saturday was Celine Dion's birthday, and we all know how nuts things get out in the country when they're celebrating the Quebec Siren.
