A man who was arrested after allegedly throwing a bag of pork chops at police says he was simply trying to “be nice” to the officers who arrested him

The man who allegedly threw a bag full of pork skewers at police officers on the evening of July 28 in north Florida has been released.

Daniel Egan, 26, of Jupiter, was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

He was released from jail on $2,500 bond.

Egan told police he was walking home after a night of partying when he was confronted by two officers, one of whom told him to put down the bags of pork he was carrying, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Egan then told the officers that he was trying to be nice, the report said.

The officers were responding to a call about a man throwing food at them.

Eagan, of Sarasota, Fla., told the Palm Beach Post he was arrested because he was seen with a bag that looked like a bag and said he did not throw anything.

He told the Post he thought he was being detained for trespassing when he saw the officers on patrol.

He said he was not intoxicated and that he had no intention of harming anyone, according to the Post.

Eggs are not allowed in Florida and there is no state law banning them.
