Man Repeatedly Fakes Seizures To Score Free Food

Cutting out on a check is bad enough, but taking advantage of the compassion of others and wasting valuable medical resources is quite another.

But that’s just what 43-year old Baltimore resident Andrew Palmer had been doing. When he couldn’t pay for a meal, he would fake a seizure that required the assistance of medical personnel. He was eventually busted by a responding officer that recognized him from a previous incident.

But here’s what I don’t understand. First off, none of these meals exceeded $100. In fact, many of them were in the $40-$60 range and consisted of mostly alcohol. I would have thought if you were going to go through the trouble of faking a seizure to get out of paying a bill, you might go out of town to a fancy restaurant once in a while.

Secondly, if he can’t afford a $40 restaurant tab, how is he going to pay for insurance and the medical bills associated with repeated visits?
