BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Baton Rouge Police have arrested a man who was caught shoplifting nearly $100 worth of ribs taken from a Piggly Wiggly supermarket.

WAFB-TV reports Dunn told police he was only trying to eat and live.
Dunn faces charges of aggravated battery other deadly weapon and fifth offense of theft of goods.
He is being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a $5,000 bond. It was unclear if Dunn has an attorney.
