A father and son duo working at a Syracuse, New York restaurant have taken note of the country’s chicken-wing obsession and ventured into the world of black market chicken wings.

Both fifty-six-year-old Paul Rojek and thirty-three-year-old Joshua Rojek worked at the Twin Trees Too restaurant in New York; the duo was in charge of placing chicken wing orders to a wholesaler. Instead of picking up the wings to serve at the restaurant, the duo allegedly pocketed the chicken and resold the meat at a reduced price.

The men have allegedly acquired $41,000 from this illicit black market chicken wing scandal, and now face charges for grand larceny and falsifying business records. 

Let’s be real, after watching a few episodes of Hot Ones, the duo probably wanted to try the chicken wings challenge themselves.
