A Saskatchewan man took his craving for ice cream to a whole new level on the weekend. According to the Tisdale RCMP, a man landed his helicopter in a high traffic parking lot at around 5 pm on July 31.

The RCMP stepped in after realizing it was not an emergency landing, but rather the pilot simply wanted to go into Dairy Queen to pick up an ice cream cake.

"When it landed, the helicopter blew up dust and debris through the area, which includes schools, an aquatic centre and more," explained an RCMP release. "Officers determined the pilot, a 34-year-old man from Leroy, was licensed to drive the helicopter, but that it was illegal to land it where he did," the release continued.

Four days following the incident, the man was charged with one count of dangerous operation of an aircraft. He is set to appear in Melfort Provincial Court on September 7.
