Woman Arrested After Early-Morning Wine and Pie Incident

After drinking a bottle of wine inside a Northgate grocery store early Monday morning, a 48-year-old woman roamed the store eating handfuls of pie before she was arrested by police.

The incident began around 6 AM, when an employee saw the woman drinking a bottle of wine in the store and asked her to leave. Instead, the woman drank the rest of the bottle and walked over to the store’s bakery where she picked up a blueberry pie. The woman then proceeded to eat fistfuls of the pie in the store’s coffee shop before ditching the dessert and walking out of the store.

By this point, employees had called police, who arrived, arrested the intoxicated woman and booked her into the King County Jail for theft and trespassing.
