A drunk man reportedly got a case of the munchies and made quite a scene at a LaPorte grocery store. 

LaPorte police say employees at a Kroger found 31-year-old John Honaker standing in the bakery section surrounded by a mess of food around 3:00am Tuesday morning.  Police say the bakery section was littered with muffin wrappers, broken glass bottles, plastic containers, and lunch meat with bites taken out of it.

Employees told police they had seen Honaker pushing a cart earlier with nacho cheese running down his face and the odor of alcohol on his breath.

Police took Honaker into custody on a preliminary charge of Public Intoxication, but the LaPorte County Prosecutor's Office is reviewing the case, and additional charges could follow.
