News 3 goes live from Dinglewood Pharmacy remembering Lieutenant Stevens

Local News

It’s tough day at Dinglewood Pharmacy.

The man who made the midtown Columbus drug store famous died Wednesday afternoon during a medical treatment. Charles “Lieutenant” Stevens was 87 years old and served scramble dogs since the end of World War II.

If you have to ask who Lieutenant is and what’s a scrambled dog, you are probably not from this area.

News Three’s Chuck Williams was live at Dinglewood, appropriately at lunchtime to talk about Lieutenant and his legacy.

The scrambled dog is the ultimate comfort food. And today a lot of folks who called Lieutenant a dear friend are here to get a taste of nostalgia.  And it tastes a lot like a cut up hot dog weenie, chili, onions and pickles.
