Two Officers and a Gentleman...and a Doughnut

In a sugar-coated twist of fate, two officers used a doughnut to bait a "gentleman" wanted on two felony warrants.  The gentleman--a man on a scavenger hunt, dressed in a pink frilly skirt, who hoped to snap a photo of a cop eating a doughnut at a police station.  One officer intended to play along, but a second officer recognized the scavenger as a man wanted on two felony warrants. So the two officers arrested him.  And as for the doughnut, that was just icing on the cake.  No word as to whether the two cops fought for the doughnut or divided it evenly after their tag-team effort.
