Wisconsin Man Treats Local Denny’s Like It’s His Own Kitchen

Man makes own Denny's meal
Madison Police Department

You may have eaten at Denny’s and thought, “Ugh, I can cook better than this,” but you probably didn’t barge into the restaurant’s kitchen to test out the theory. However, one man in Wisconsin did.

According to a police report, 52-year-old James B. Summers of Madison strolled into a local Denny’s, told the employees on duty he was the new general manager, and then proceeded to cook up a burger and fries for himself back in the kitchen.

Needless to say, this was all very confusing for the lady who really is the general manager, so a flurry of phone calls to the corporate office ensued. In the meantime, Summers sat down to enjoy the fruits of his culinary labor, even insisting to the police who eventually showed up that the GM job was his and any confusion was due to a paperwork snafu.

The boys in blue didn’t buy it and took Summers off to the pokey, charging him with fraud, possession of a taser, disorderly conduct and — in news that will surprise exactly no one — possession of drug paraphernalia.

“This is why you don’t dine and dash, kiddies!,” Summers yelled to diners as officers escorted him out.

We sure hope he left a tip.
