Man shows his meat to Burger King staffer

Michael Roberts has the scoop on Richard Troupe, the Longmont man charged with dropping trou at a Longmont Burger King and asking a staffer to hold his "whopper."

But Longmont Police spokesman Jeff Satur isn't laughing, and neither is the young woman who turned down Troupe's offer.

"There's been some humor in some of the comments I've seen about this," Longmont Police spokesman Jeff Satur told Roberts, "but this was a very serious event for the young lady who had to witness it. She was very scared, very concerned for her safety."

Interestingly, Troupe had parked in the lot of a nearby Applebee's, but decided to make his play at Burger King. Last fall, he was banned from Oskar Blues for slapping a server on the butt.
