Man Demands Free Food At McDonald's, Says He's A Cop, Gets Arrested By The Real Ones
A man in Florida went to a McDonald's drive-thru last Friday and allegedly demanded a free meal. He claimed he deserved it because he said he was a cop who had just come back from a sting operation.
He flashed a gun and a badge. That was when the restaurant called the real cops.
When police arrived, Joseph Pineda was still in his car. He was arrested and charged with felony impersonating a police officer and a misdemeanor charge of improper exhibition of a firearm.
Would he have done better impersonating the Hamburglar instead?
