Manchester United keeper David De Gea steals doughnut
De Gea, you doughnut
David De Gea has escaped with a slap on the wrist after being caught stealing a doughnut.
The Manchester United goalkeeper and two friends were caught helping themselves to a Krispy Kreme doughnut from a Tesco store before attempting to leave without paying.
Despite his £70,000-a-week pay packet, De Gea was seemingly not prepared to pay £1.19 to satisfy his sweet tooth.
The group were detained by security staff at the shop and shown CCTV footage of the incident.
A source told The Sun: “They [De Gea and his two friends] weren’t very subtle. They swaggered in chatting loudly in Spanish. The security guards who monitor the CCTV watched two of them take a doughnut each out of the Krispy Kreme cabinet. Incredibly, they then appeared to try to leave without paying – or buying anything else for that matter.”
The 20-year-old Spaniard escaped further trouble when the trio were allowed to go on their way with a warning without the police being involved.
A Tesco spokesman told The Sun: “A customer was spoken to by our security team and the issue was resolved.”
