A Wisconsin man made an unusual demand before he was even arrested by fleeing a traffic stop to head to McDonald's for a meal.

What are the details?

Police stopped 50-year-old Jack Rasmussen — who was wanted on an outstanding warrant — on Wednesday.

During the stop, Rasmussen reportedly proceeded to flee from the officer, and drive himself to a nearby McDonald's.

As he arrived at the franchise, he reportedly exited his car and began walking toward the building despite an officer's request that he remain by his vehicle.

According to court documents obtained by WQOW-TV, an officer told Rasmussen to remain by his car because he was wanted on an arrest warrant.

Rasmussen reportedly did not comply, and told the officer that he was "not going to put handcuffs on him until he ate his McDonald's."

According to the station, police called for backup — a second officer — and Rasmussen was eventually taken into custody despite resisting arrest.

What else?

The station reported that Rasmussen faces two charges for felony bail jumping and resisting an officer.

Rasmussen could face up to six years, nine months in jail if convicted on those charges.
