[Chicago Sun Times]  A man who allegedly stole nacho cheese from a University Village 7-Eleven found himself the butt of an old joke in court Sunday. Michael Richards, 50, bought a bag of potato chips from the store in the 1300 block of South Halsted, then illegally doused the chips in nacho cheese, Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Dan Piwowarczyk said. When the store clerk told him the nacho cheese was only for customers who paid for it to use on corn chips in a traditional plastic tray, Richards pulled the clerk’s arm behind his back, twisted it and threatened the clerk, according to a police report. Police arrested Richards a block away Saturday, the report shows. When Judge James Brown asked, “So what was stolen was the cheese?,” Piwowarczyk kept an admirably straight face as he replied, “The defendant was informed that it was not yo’ cheese.” Richards, of the 9400 block of South Burnside, was ordered held on bail of $10,000. “That’s a very low bond, for a robbery,” the judge told him.

Sucks for Kramer.  Just another superstar being raked over the coals and made an example of simply because of who he is.  You think if this wasn’t Michael Richards they’d have still charged him with ROBBERY for “illegally dousing” nacho cheese and set his bail at 10 G’s?   (more…)
