Selma police arrested a man for allegedly stealing a plate of food from a restaurant, but he told them he was happy to go to jail.

Police were called to the Pizza Inn at 1441 South Pollock St. after the man allegedly filled his plate with food then walked out the door.

Police found 49-year-old Alan Miscavage, of New Jersey across the street.

Miscavage allegedly told officers he was homeless and was happy to be going to jail. He told them the jail offered free food, running water, and a place to stay until his court date.

Miscavage was charged with defrauding an innkeeper for not paying for the food, and misdemeanor larceny for leaving with the food plate valued at $10.  Bond was set at $3,500. His court date was set for August 22.
