Krispy Kreme provided the backdrop for not just one, but two incidents last night that left a handful of people injured. In both South Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Mobile, Alabama, two unrelated incidents took place Monday night that have us wondering: what is the deal with Krispy Kreme?

John Jennings, 19, was taken into custody with four of his buddies after a Scranton, Pennsylvania, scuffle that started out at Krispy Kreme on Moosic Street. Jennings allegedly swung a knife around inside the shop around 8:35 p.m. after a heated argument and then fled the scene. A gun was fired shortly after and, luckily, there were no injuries reported.

Around the same time in Mobile, Alabama, in front of a Krispy Kreme, a drug investigator working undercover shot a man in his car. The victim, Travis Perryman, 30, was rushed to the University of South Alabama Medical Center. It seems that the undercover investigators were following Perryman in a van and when they tried to stop his vehicle, he just didn’t care. While we do not know what precipitated the shooting, it’s known that both vehicles finally came to a red light right in front of a Krispy Kreme. Midtown spokesman Major Chad Tucker explained, “Somewhere during the stop the deputies felt threatened.”

Even though these events were not related, you can’t help but think that maybe a doughnut or two would have done these guys some good. In other news, Krispy Kreme opened its first store in Bangkok, Thailand today. No shootings have been reported yet!
