Live 5's Andy Pruitt wins Krispy Kreme doughnut eating challenge

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The competition wasn't even close!

Live 5 News' Sports Director Andy Pruitt smoked other media folks in the Krispy Kreme Donut Eating contest on Thursday.

A dozen donuts were put in front of each person and the clock started.

It only took Andy 3 minutes and two seconds to put down the 12 donuts for Andy. He says his secret was he ate a very small breakfast and drank a ton of water before starting.

It was all for a great cause. Local law enforcement agencies are raising money for the Special Olympics.

Officers were also on the roof of the donut shop at 1491 Savannah Highway collecting donations for the Special Olympics of South Carolina as part of "Cops on Top of Doughnut Shops."

The event will last through Saturday, going from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

For $20, you can get a coupon for a free dozen glazed doughnuts, and a Torch Run T-shirt.
