Records obtained by the Sun-Times show the Chicago Bear spent almost $700 buying assorted junk food during the 60 days he spent in the Cook County Jail.

And while the 6-foot-3, 300-pound lineman is built like a vending machine, the roster of items he ordered reads like he raided one, too:
162 beef sticks

40 honey bun sweet rolls

35 summer sausage blocks

35 bags of barbecue chips

That's one hungry man, almost LenDale White like hungar.

uh...i didn't know prison had vending machines.


They don't. They have what is called commissary, a cart comes around once or twice a week and you have a tag on your wrist that reads how much money you have "on the books" that you can spend. there is a limit to the amount you can spend during a certain period of time if it is by weekly or monthly, I don't know.

Anyone can put money on "your books" upto a certain amount.
