    Was the guy a felon with warrants or something? Stealing $1 worth of anything isn't a felony crime.

    *edit*

    Went in and read the article. Here is the bit of info that turns this story from absurd to just, IMO.

    Abaire, who is unemployed, has a history of minor petty theft convictions. That history led law enforcement officers to ratchet the case up from a misdemeanor to a felony.
    At some point enough is enough. It's like the three strikes law that pertains to felony convictions, but on a more minor level.
