We’re dealing with a HUGE developing story right now … and it involves Bill Cosby and a chicken patty.
Early reports on Tuesday morning suggested Cosby may have been struck in the face by an errant chicken patty at the State Correctional Institution (SCI) – Phoenix in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, this week after telling a joke to his fellow inmates.

One of the inmates listening to the joke apparently didn’t take it too well. “That inmate was mad enough to take his chicken out of the bun and plunge it at him,” a source told Radar Online.
But according to TMZ, those reports are falsehoods.
“This did NOT happen, and I am unhappy with anyone who is reporting such fake news,” a law enforcement official told TMZ.
In fact, Cosby doesn’t even have the privilege of socializing with other inmates yet — since he’s only been in prison for two weeks. (RELATED: Here’s The Advice OJ Simpson Has For Bill Cosby In Prison)
No word on whether reports about the stale hot dog bun that hit him upon arrival at the prison are still true.
Cosby, 81, is serving a 3-to-10 year sentence in maximum security prison for sexual assault.
