Baltimore, MD: 46-year old Andrew Palmer has been arrested for a scheme in which he eats at a restaurant and then fakes a seizure at the end of the meal to avoid paying the tab.
He has been labeled “Dine and Dasher” by restaurant owners in the area; the scheme has gone on for years and he has served time in jail before. Recently he refused to pay a $50 tab at Viccino Jay’s Italian Gourmet; the night before paramedics were called to take care of him when he collapsed at Oliver Speck’s Restaurant.
The Huffington Post quoted the chef at Oliver Speck’s: ”The paramedics showed up and said, ‘Looks like our guy’s back. …”He would not wake up, and they were like, ‘Come on Andy, stop faking.’”

Martin County, FL: Elee Medina, 28, who was spotted Sept. 30 “fidgeting” with his pants near an apparent pile of poop in the parking lot of the Seminole Country Inn in Indiantown.
About two weeks earlier, Seminole Country Inn officials asked for an extra patrol in the early morning hours because someone had been defecating in the parking lot “several times a week.” A deputy rolled in the parking lot about 6:20 a.m. and saw a man later identified as Medina. He was “fidgeting” with his trousers and got in his car.
“I then observed what appeared to be defecation and wet wipes in a pile on the ground where I previously saw Medina standing,” the report states.
Medina said he stopped to drink water and rest because of his lengthy commute from Green Acres.
“I asked Medina about the defecation and he said he didn’t see it until I pointed it out,” the report states.
Evidently, Medina wasn’t able to wipe away the investigator’s concerns. The deputy saw an apparent reddish brown spot on Medina’s white shirt “which was consistent with the color of the defecation on the ground.”
Wet wipes on the ground had “A,B,C’”s printed on them — as did baby wipes in Medina’s car.
