A 27-year-old man would only say “hot dog” when detectives interviewed him after he was found riding a motorcycle that had been reported as stolen, Eureka Police reported.
The man, who did not have a listed address, was arrested Dec. 1 in St. Clair by a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper. The man was allegedly riding a 1982 Honda Silver Wing motorcycle that had been reported stolen from outside an apartment complex on Beverly Street in Eureka, police reported.
A 58-year-old Eureka man told police the motorcycle was stolen between 7 a.m. Nov. 24 and 7 p.m. Nov. 25, the report said.
When police asked the 27-year-old asked if he had stolen the motorcycle, he allegedly responded by saying, “hot dog.”
Asked where the motorcycle came from, he again said, “hot dog,” and then refused to say anything else to detectives, the report said.
The motorcycle was returned to its owner, and the highway patrol will pursue charges against the man, Eureka Police Capt. David Wilson said.
