LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- "7-Eleven's coffee is better!"

That's what police say an Indiana man yelled before throwing a hot pot of it on someone at a convenience store. 

Police say 30-year-old Michael Coleman actually stole a coffee pot and a pair of sunglasses from a 7-Eleven in Elkhart, Indiana. 

30 minutes later, police say Coleman walked into a different gas station, wearing the sunglasses, picked up another coffee pot and yelled "7-Eleven's coffee is better" before throwing the pot, causing hot coffee to splash on a victim's face. 

Police tried to catch Coleman, but he broke free and ran away. 

He was eventually found in a garage, naked, where he was arrested.
