Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro visited Pittsburgh, PA last week host a free cake giveaway. Some 10,000 cakes were slated to be handed away for absolutely nothing, and one man found a way to ruin that and start a riot in the process. Everyone was asked to wait in line and behave like adults, but William Davenport was having nothing of the sort.
The 52-year-old Davenport cut the line, snuck into a storage area and stole four cakes. Free cake giveaway staff members are prepared for this type of fuckery, so they phoned police who caught Davenport rather quickly. He explained that alcohol played a significant role in his decision making.
But that's not the end of the drama. Davenport's attempted cake theft set off a chain reaction of violence:
"This incident stirred the crowd causing alarm and great commotion from the hundreds of people who had been standing and waiting in the very long lines. It is reported that throughout the event officers had to separate people and quell fights in the lines from people who attempted to jump the line in front of those who had been waiting for hours to receive a cake."
Blame William Davenport, because every public uprising needs a scapegoat.
