A sore throat landed a Tri-City man in jail on Friday morning.
Caleb Robert Wortman, 21, reportedly was caught trying to steal a bag of strawberry-flavored cough drops from the Grocery Outlet store in Kennewick.
When he was confronted, he reportedly put up a fight, allegedly biting an employee twice and trying to get away before police arrived.
When Kennewick police finally arrested him, officers said they found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in his pocket.
