Some crimes just make me laugh. Unluckily for this particular man, I am not the judge, or I would have let him off for creativity.
Police in Wisconsin said that they have arrested a man who claimed to have been sent by Denny’s corporate offices and made himself a meal in the kitchen of a restaurant.
James Summers, 52, of Madison entered the restaurant around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and told workers that he had been sent by the corporate office. He said that he was immediately taking over the position of general manager.
Workers said that Summers began making himself a cheeseburger and fries in the restaurant’s kitchen while the current manager phoned her supervisors.
The manager called 911 when she confirmed Summers had not been sent by the company and he was arrested while walking near the Denny’s.
Summers told police that the incident must have been the result of a paperwork mix-up, but officers said that they confirmed that he had not been sent by Denny’s officials.
Police said that Summers was also carrying a stun gun and did not have a permit.
He was arrested on charges of fraud, possession of an electric weapon, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia.
