One of the more unusual items I tried during my recent stint as a State Fair food judge was the Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper-inspired “Unicorn Crepe.” It was a mix of Raspberry goo, chocolate, cotton candy and Rainbow Bright tears.
When I saw the dish, I remember thinking “That looks fun and everything, but who would order that other than a gang of girls who just left a princess party?” The answer to that question is this guy:
That’s Godfrey Washington. He was arrested at the fair over the weekend after he attempted to rob a carnie. He was caught thanks to a white and pink unicorn stuffed animal he was carrying around the midway:
Authorities say they arrested one man who allegedly robbed a worker at the Oklahoma State Fair this weekend.
According to the arrest affidavit, an officer working the fair was flagged down by an employee at a carnival stand following an alleged robbery.
The victim told police that the suspect was wearing a white t-shirt and carrying a white and pink unicorn.
The affidavit states that the victim told officers that the man asked for a cigarette before attempting to steal money from him.
Officers eventually caught up with 20-year-old Godfrey Washington III and took him into custody.
Washington was arrested on complaints of robbery by force, possession of a firearm in commission of a felony and concealing stolen property.
If the worst thing to happen at this year’s fair is a unicorn fan attempting to rob a carnie, I think we can all agree it was a successful event.
