If you had the ability to time travel four years into the past, where would you go and what would one do? For most people, that would prove to be a difficult question to answer as they carefully weigh their options to maximize the effect of this awesome ability. However, for one 36-year-old Oklahoma resident, the answer is incredibly simple - go back into the past and steal some food.

According to Oklahoma City Police Department, that was how Dante Rashad Anderson explained why he robbed some food from an Arby's outlet in the city, reports Fox25. Police dispatched to 90020 for a disturbance report at a Carl's Junior outlet learned that a man entered the restaurant demanding food. However, Carl's Junior employees were having none of the man's tantrums and successfully ejected him from their premises.

The man,who was later identified to be Dante Anderson,then proceeded to cross the street targeting another restaurant, an Arby's outlet. Learning from the previous experience that going into a tantrum just won't cut it, he decided to be more forceful this time. According to the unlucky Arby's manager, Anderson crossed the front counter, grabbed her and pushed to a wall. Seeing his target, he then grabbed some chicken and bacon before walking out of the establishment, even breaking the glass door on his way out.

Apparently, Anderson doesn't like cars stuck in traffic blocking his escape route with his handful of loot. Patricia Beedle, whose car was in traffic at that time, relates that Anderson did a Chuck Norris-like move, kicking Beedle's car so forcefully that she felt the momentum of Anderson's kick, according to Mandatory. Her brand new car still has the dent as proof.

The man was eventually tracked outside Taco Mayo, 8800 S. Western lying on the ground and complaining of a broken ankle. Gary Knight, Oklahoma City Police MSgt, revealed that Anderson explained his behavior saying that he from the future four years from now and that is the method of getting food at that time. He added that everyone is dead in the planet where he came from.

Knight suspects that Anderson could be under the influence of intoxicants or narcotics or suffering from a mental condition that caused his failure to grasp reality. But as far as an excuse for stealing, a time traveller from another planet is hard to top.

By the way, the chicken and bacon Anderson managed to steal from Arby's were probably the ingredients for a monstrosity called Arby's Meat Mountain. Check out the video below which shows the most efficient way to finish the challenging meal.
