In perhaps the very definition of tacky, a man in Pennsylvania is accused of stealing his ex-girlfriend's engagement ring and giving it to his wife.

Donald Albritton, 35, pocketed the ring while his ex made Thanksgiving dinner, then gave it to his current wife in hopes of patching up their relationship, The Associated Press reported.

He was charged with theft and was released from jail last week.

Albritton also faces charges in an unrelated incident last month in which police say he punched a man in the face and stole his cellphone, the Scranton Times-Tribune reported.
