When it comes to food, a hungry man isn't much different than a hungry lion.

A 50-year-old man was taken into custody yesterday morning after he barricaded himself inside his Bayview apartment threatening to harm himself over a piece of chicken.

According to Sgt. Daryl Fong, the man became perturbed, believing that someone in his apartment complex had eaten his chicken. The man armed himself with knives and proceeded to walk throughout the complex, looking for the person who "ate his chicken."

"He just got mad over his chicken," Fong said.

Neighbors became alarmed over the man's hunger and called police to the complex on the1600 block of Oakdale.

When the cops arrived, the armed man barricaded himself inside his own apartment, threatening to harm himself. The cops negotiated with the man, who eventually opened the door. He was taken into custody.

That must have been some Goood Frikin Chicken.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
