Always at Denny’s: Man charged after cooking own meal at restaurant

Braunwynn, the 19-year-old daughter who is a second-year university student, got so excited about her calorie-dense breakfast she posted a pic on facebook (right, exactly as shown, looks great).

At least she cooked in her own kitchen, unlike 52-year-old James Summers, who claimed to be the new manager of a Denny’s restaurant in Wisconsin and then cooked himself a cheeseburger and fries.

Police say Summers, wearing a tie and carrying a briefcase, claimed he was sent by Denny’s corporate office on Wednesday to be the new manager at the restaurant in Madison.

The current manager told him he must have the wrong restaurant.

Mr Summers told her she apparently had not received the memo about the change in leadership.

Authorities say the manager called her supervisors while Mr Summers helped himself to a meal.

A local television report says police were summoned and took Mr Summers into custody.

Officers say they found a stun gun on his belt.

Mr Summers is charged with disorderly conduct, drug possession and possessing an electric weapon.
