PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh man has been accused of cutting a line waiting to get free cakes from the Cake Boss and stealing four of them. Hundreds of people were waiting Tuesday morning in downtown Pittsburgh to get the free cakes from the star of the Hoboken, N.J.-based TV show "Cake Boss," Buddy Valastro.
Police spokeswoman Diane Richard says William Davenport took four cakes worth about $27 each from a storage area. Police say when they stopped Williams he apologized for stealing the cakes and admitted he was intoxicated.
Police say the cake theft caused a great commotion among people who had been waiting in line for hours. Officers had to break up fights caused by other people who tried to jump the line. No attorney for Williams is listed in court papers.
