Police: Drunk Man Breaks Into Pizza Hut, Fries Wings

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (WCCO) — St. Cloud Police say an intoxicated man broke into a Pizza Hut, attempted to fry up some boneless chicken wings and threw marinara sauce on the wall.

Cory Michael Mogen, 21, of St. Cloud, was transported to the Stearns County Jail after police found him inside the Pizza Hut on the 100 block of 7th Avenue South. He’s being held on a possible third-degree burglary charge.

Officers say they were dispatched to the Pizza Hut around 1:25 a.m. on Friday after the business’ alarm went off. Upon arrival, police say Mogen had attempted to fry up some wings and had splattered marinara sauce against the wall.

Mogen was given a preliminary breath test which indicated a .22 BAC with a “weak breath.”

    • I was in college once.

      Cost of stolen wings: 0 dollars. Cost of attorney for defense of criminal charge: a lot. Cost of being nominated for the college party hall of fame: priceless.

    • Pizza Hut Owner

      I CANNOT believe that you all find this to be so amusing. I own a Pizza Hut franchise and this type of SHENANIGANS causes nothing but headaches and restless nights. I SINCERELY hope Cory Mogen gets a long stay in the gray bar hotel for his wreckless and vicious actions!

      • Smitty

        Just beat him and let him go. Send him to jail and he’ll just get schooled in robbing Pizza huts.

      • Mogen Wing King

        This could have easily been avoided if the hut wings were available 24/7, Mogen has gained this insight through ingesting the firemost wings around. If pizza hut owners knew of the great treasure they posses called wing street they would do nothing to keep us from our sacred firemost wings. Mogen for Pizza Hut Prez!!!!!

        Lighten up dude

      • Pizza hut worker

        Why should he lighten up? Yes, the story is funny, but this idiot could have burned the place down. How would you like to have your livelhood taken away because of an idiot with no self-control?

      • MN Tom

        If I worked at pizza hut I wouldn’t be calling that my lively hood.

      • ForMogen

        Lol, you make me laugh. He COULD of burnt the place down but he DIDN’T. So, how are you going to sit here and say that he deserves a long stay behind the “gray bar hotel”. (it’s motel) Really? Get a grip. He’s young. Don’t you think that he’ll just be taking up space in this “gray bar hotel” that some sex offender should be in place of? Sorry you never lived your life and did something stupid. It never said that he stole anything. It said that he fried up wings and threw marinara sauce on the walls. Loosen up dude.

      • Mike

        Pizza Hut Owner-headaches and restless nights? Better then the indigestion and embarassment I suffer after trying one your, ‘so called’ pizzas! I have NEVER seen a Pizza Hut creation on ANYONE’S list of must try or top rated pizzas. Their was no harm done in this instance that cound not be repaired and the advertisement Pizza Huts received is priceless.

      • kibbedw

        sorry for partyin

      • pizza hut can suck it, so can worker

        cry cry wah wah oh… what’s life?

      • Corey Wing King Mogen

        You clearly aren’t a medical Dr.. You don’t know what I went through that night. I suffer from a severe addiction. Pizza Hut Wings are the most addictive drug known to man. I was sweating profusely, shaking and going through the worst chills I’ve ever experienced in my life. I don’t think you’ve been through half of that in your life. I’m a soldier, what are you? I’ll tell you.. You’re a corporate pig, more concerned with making an extra buck than trying to help your community and give back. All I wanted was a Pizza Hut Wing (PHW). You should be ashamed of yourself. I am giving OUR company (YES, THAT’S RIGHT, I’M A PIZZA HUT EMPLOYEE TOO) more positive publicity than you have ever given it in your infantile, and menial existence. What you don’t know Mr. Pizza Hut corporate PIG is that I am in talks with people who could have your balls on a string, I have been in talks with Pizza Hut and we are on the verge of working out a deal to change Wing St. to Mogen St., I hope you’re happy. You are going to get more business than ever before and it’s ENTIRELY because of me. Once again, SHAME ON YOU.
        Lord and King of Wing

      WHAT IS THIS, FOX 9? come on. they guy had a few to many drinks and you post him on your website like some kind of criminal. give me a break. He wanted some wings….

    • cello

      if he was frying donuts ‘good citizen award’.

  • tone

    Gotta love them wings

  • TS

    Did you really just put a political spin on this story?

    • lure

      best part about it is this kid works there

      • DH

        You mean, he worked there.

        • Gomer'sPile in MN

          did he have keys or did he actually break in?

    • ??

      Who’s your comment aimed at?? it’s way down the list from when you left it this morning

  • Nate

    If you’re going to break into a pizza hut and attempt to fry up some wings your BAC should be well above .30

    What a lightweight.

    • JamieinMN

      Maybe it WAS above .30 when he entered the place…..hmmm

  • Pat

    He absolutely did! The evidence was clear.

  • Joker of Spades

    This poor guy just had the drinkin’ munchies! Nothing goes better after drinking then some blazin’ hot wings!

  • JamieinMN

    I’m sorry, I couldn’t help but simply laugh.

  • Casey

    Did the poor guy get to eat his wings? I’d throw their marinara sauce too…it’s disgusting.

  • Terry

    Those darn democrats, always wanting something for free…………seriously…….. hahahahahahahahahahahah……..

  • pete

    “I thought the kitchen seemed a little bigger than the one in the apartment”

  • TW

    Did he make enough for all the responding officers? I mean since he had the fryer all warmed up and all, you know, a little something for the effort? Seriously, dude could have been burned goofing off with a deep fryer and being drunk. Hopefully his sober brain realizes they have done him a huge favor by doing their job. Do you think maybe this is a wake up call that his drinking and eating problems need attention?

  • mark from mntaxwaste.com

    Sliders would have been better

  • Allah

    If he was an immigrant the ACLU would sue the cops for stomping on his human rights….you know the right to be drunk and hungry…..

  • Melvin

    Mam I love St Cloud! Funny!!!!

  • Melvin


  • red

    Does he really work there? by the way this kid looks 10 not even old enough to have been drinking

    • Rich EZ

      Like it was earlier stated – the Young Republicans are young ;-)

  • rich n.


  • flanders

    I would be willing to bet he no longer works there. If he did.

  • tommy

    If that’s his mug shot, he doesn’t look too concern for his crime. Make him work at Pizza Hut to pay for his crime and make him take back buffalo wings to eat the whole time he is incarcerated.

  • Deb

    21? really?

  • jon

    Their wings aren’t even that great. At least do this somewhere that has decent wings.

  • TMU

    Mogenator at his best. Didn’t even want any cash, just some chow. They should drop the charge!

  • Ralph bets

    Maybe he still does — they just caught him red-handed. Not convicted yet. lol

  • musicman

    This is not the first dumb thing somebody has done while under the influence. I think you file this under stupidity and forget about trying to make it a criminal act.
