Dine and Dash, via Ambulance [Updated]
The Baltimore Sun relates the adventures of one Andrew Palmer, age 43, who decided that the conventional dine-and-dash scam was too, well, conventional.
Prosecutors say Palmer dined at restaurants including Capital Grille, Burke's Cafe, Ding How Restaurant, Maisy's Restaurant, and Borinken Bar and Restaurant between April 26 and July 21. In each case, he feigned a seizure requiring the presence of medical personnel.According to the Sun, Palmer's rap sheet pre dine-and-seizure counted a whopping 89 charges and 34 convictions.
However, the article doesn't reveal how the cops caught on to the alleged scam. I'm guessing it's when a good Samaritan tried to wedge a spoon into Palmer's mouth, and he requested it first be heaped with Beluga caviar.
