A drunken, obscenity-laced tussle with police and a hot dog vendor prompted a Georgia prosecutor to step down from his post, OnlineAthens.com reported.

Police arrested William Michael Olson, an assistant district attorney, on misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and theft of services, after he allegedly refused to pay for a hot dog.

Authorities responded to reports of a fight, in which the street vendor said Olson placed both of his hands on the vendor's chest after refusing to pay.

When police apprehended Olson, he said he didn't know anything about a hot dog, but had mustard and ketchup on his shirt. Olson proceeded to flash his assistant district attorney badge and told police to "be careful."

Olson posted $500 bond and resigned hours after the scuffle.
