BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Baton Rouge Police have arrested a man who was caught shoplifting nearly $100 worth of ribs taken from a Piggly Wiggly supermarket.

It happened just before noon on Sunday.

Authorities say 54-year-old Eugene Dunn was being held down in the store's parking lot by two men when officers arrived. Police say there were about four packages of meat lying on the ground and an officer removed four more racks of ribs from Dunn's pants.

WAFB-TV reports Dunn told police he was only trying to eat and live.

Dunn faces charges of aggravated battery other deadly weapon and fifth offense of theft of goods.

He is being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a $5,000 bond. It was unclear if Dunn has an attorney.
