Others do it for fame.
There might even be those who do it for money.
Sgt. Howard Sawyers does it for doughnuts.
The sergeant, who trains correctional officers at the Walworth County Jail, is the world's cop doughnut eating champion for the third time.
The 17 doughnuts he downed in three minutes to win this year's championship April 22 also set a cop doughnut-eating record. Sawyers has won the championship more times than anybody—three out of the six annual contests.
