A giveaway of candies ended up on a sour note at a Cheesecake Factory in Virginia.

The Cheesecake Factory is celebrating 40 years with a very sweet celebration.

Starting at 11:30 a.m., customers can get their free cheesecake slice through the DoorDash app by using the promo code "FREESLICE" at checkout.

New blood test could spot cancer cells more quickly
If DNA from cancer cells is then added, it sticks to the nanoparticles in such a way that the water retains its original colour. Researchers said the test could be used as an initial check for cancers wherein doctors could follow up positive results.

Officers did not find a fight but stated there was a large crowd inside the restaurant due to the promotion, which aimed to give away free slices of cheesecake across the country. Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage says nearby roads were jammed and would-be delivery drivers were double-parked. Authorities said a struggle ensued while officers attempted to take the man into custody.

A spokesperson for DoorDash says the food delivery company is aware of the incident and cooperating with local law enforcement.

After the struggle the man was taken to the hospital at his request for possible injuries.
