Cheapskate arrested

ATLANTA (AP) - October 31, 2008

But there's a catch -- you have to pay for it! Authorities in Fulton County, Georgia, have busted Dan Linscomb for theft of service.

Deputies charge he refused to pay his tab at the Iron Skillet buffet in northwest Atlanta.

Officials say Linscomb ate at the buffet and let his girlfriend eat from his plate, too.

He was charged for two seven-buck meals.

After a couple of days of jail food, Linscomb pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct and was released.
