RACINE — A 35-year-old Racine man faces a misdemeanor charge after he found an unusual way to pass the time Monday evening.

The man, Sharquon K. Liggins, is accused of throwing frozen pork ribs at passing cars in the 1200 block of South Memorial Drive, scattering meat across four lanes of traffic, according to his criminal complaint.

Police responded to the area at 9:36 p.m. Monday after one passing driver reported that Liggins had tried to throw meat at their car.

Officers found 15 to 20 ribs on the road and eventually made contact with Liggins at his home on the same block after they found a plastic bag of ribs in the yard in front of his house.

Liggins admitted to throwing the meat and was quoted in the police report as saying he “thought it was funny.”

Meanwhile, police noted that he could not stay balanced, had slurred speech and appeared to be foaming from the mouth, but refused medical attention.

Liggins was arrested after becoming uncooperative and aggressive, and he was later put on a hold for violation of his probation terms, according to the complaint.

He was charged with one count of disorderly conduct Tuesday, and a court commissioner set a $100 cash bond for his release.
