Con cooks up free food ruse

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TRICK­STER strolled into a res­tau­rant and cooked him­self a meal – af­ter claim­ing he was the new gen­eral man­ager.

Hun­gry James Sum­mers used the elab­o­rate ruse to get free grub from the Denny’s fast-food chain.

As the 52-year-old – who was car­ry­ing a brief case and wear­ing a coat and tie – sat and ate the cheese­burger and fries the real gen­eral man­ager con­fronted him af­ter ring­ing the firm’s HQ.

Po­lice were called and he was hauled off, not least for hav­ing an un­li­censed stun gun and sev­eral crack pipes in his pock­ets.

Sum­mers, from Madi­son, Wis­con­sin, where the diner was lo­cated, was charged with fraud­u­lently im­per­son­at­ing a res­tau­rant keeper, dis­or­derly con­duct, drug pos­ses­sion and pos­sess­ing an elec­tric weapon.
