Man Eats Pancakes in the Street – level 2

07-04-2017 07:00

In Florida, a 21-year-old man received charges from the police after he posted a video of himself on Facebook. The video showed him blocking a road while he sat in a chair at a table and ate pancakes.

Police charged the prankster with obstruction of the road and disrupting traffic. He was not arrested but he has to go to court over the event.

Difficult words: receive charges (get into trouble with the law), prankster (someone who does rude or unusual things to be funny), obstruction (something that blocks another thing), disrupt (disorganise, disturb, cause problems).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
