Butt-Head of the Day: Man Buys Fries with counterfeit 50s.. Eats Cash!
So you've got $1,200 in counterfeit $50 bills. What's the first thing you buy? On Sunday night, 35-year-old Larry J. Jones of Buffalo, New York decided to take all that counterfeit money and go buy himself . . . some French fries.
Maybe he made the clerk at the restaurant suspicious because he was trying to buy a few dollars worth of fries with a 50. Maybe he made the clerk suspicious because they were really bad forgeries. But either way, the clerk told security.
They held Larry until the cops could come. And during that brief window of time, Larry decided to try to EAT the counterfeit money to destroy the evidence. (--Or maybe he was hungry because he didn't get his fries?)
The security guards got the bills out of his mouth before he could properly chew and swallow them. Larry was arrested for criminal possession of a forged instrument, and tampering with physical evidence, both of which are felonies.
