In this case, it certainly was not "good to be the King."

Royal privilege isn't what it used to be
Man says he's king and so doesn't have to pay for cigarettes, police say; they reward him with a Taser shot

WARREN, Mich. ó Warren police said a man has been charged after he told a store clerk he didn't have to pay for cigarettes because he was a king.

Joseph Lawrence Borowiak is charged with strong-arm robbery and resisting arrest after being accused of threatening a 7-Eleven store clerk on Saturday.

Police said Borowiak went into the store on Schoenherr and 12 Mile roads at about 6:30 a.m. and asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes.

Borowiak told the clerk he wasn't going to pay for the cigarettes because he was a king and didn't have to, police said.

He tried to grab the cigarettes, swung at the clerk and then ran out, police said.

A witness in the store was able to direct police to the area where Borowiak had last been seen walking.

Police said he did not immediately surrender when they found him in front a funeral home further down Schoenherr Road and officers used a Taser on him to quell him.

Police said Borowiak has a criminal history that includes a cocaine possession conviction.

Thatís the visualization I had, Elvis doing the crappie flop with Tazer probes stuck in his chest.
