Trump claims victory as deal reached to reopen US government
The White House said closed government offices could be up and running within hours now President Trump has signed the bill. It's the first time Democrats received a firm deadline for a vote on an immigration bill.
But years before he was an accused Dunkin' Donuts thief, Hardison gained national attention after he devoured eight doughnuts in two minutes, according to the report. Hardison beat police officers by scarfing down donuts in an event aimed to get "citizens and police to come together, standing in a united front against crime". After he won, police learned Hardison was wanted on suspicion of several break-ins.
Hardison would be arrested for the second time by the North Carolina authorities, but this time the charges brought against him are more severe. Camden County Sheriff's Office said the timing of the arrest was just a coincidence.
He was convicted of those crimes and received a suspended sentence of three years in jail, which ended in October 2017.
