ELIZABETH CITY — An Elizabeth City man celebrated out-eating some police officers, only to find out that he couldn’t outrun them.

The Camden County Sheriff’s Office had been looking for 24-year-old Bradley Herbert Hardison in connection with two break-ins. Sheriff Tony Perry said while nothing was taken, the front doors were damaged.

Hardison was arrested on Wednesday, one day after he won the adult division of a doughnut-eating contest at the Elizabeth City Police Department’s National Night Out Against Crime. Hardison ate eight doughnuts in 2 minutes, beating a group that included local police officers and firefighters.

In addition to the Camden County charges, Hardison is charged in Pasquotank County with felony larceny and breaking and entering. He’s jailed under a $2,000 bond and it’s not known if he has an attorney.
