HAWAII (1010 WINS) -- A Hawaii man was ordered not to drink Pepsi for four years after he was caught driving a stolen car while on the way to buy soda.

“I’ve heard a lot of people addicted to meth. I’ve heard a lot of people addicted to alcohol,” Second Circuit Judge Rhonda Loo said at the sentencing for 21-year-old Christopher Montilliano Jr. on Friday.

“This is the first time I’ve heard of a Coca-Cola addiction,” the judge said.

The Maui News reports Montilliano was arrested last June for stealing a car at a Texaco in Wailuku.

Loo said he “told various fibs, various lies” during his arrest, including that the vehicle was his cousin’s and that he was going to buy soda.

“Is it because the soda made you do it?” Loo asked.

The judged then asked Montilliano what kind of soda he was addicted to, to which he answered Pepsi.

“It’s the Pepsi deprivation syndrome,” she responded while ordering him to not indulge in the bubbly beverage for years.

Montilliano already spent more than three months in jail for skipping his original sentencing date in the case, according to The Maui News.

“I’m not going to steal cars anymore,” he said at the sentencing.
