A man found out the hard way it's not easy to return a pretty pink radio bought mistakenly as a Christmas present for a roofer.

Kenneth R. Slate, 45, began Christmas Day in jail after being arrested Sunday night while trying to exchange the radio for one with a more appropriate color."I got this radio for a roofer and he wouldn't want a pink radio," Slate told police.

After he opened the box and discovered the color, Slate returned to the store. But a guard blocked his entrance, saying the store was closing.

As Slate persisted, the guard warned him he could be arrested. With that, police reports say, Slate extended his arms and told the guard to lock him up. The guard did.
