Florida McDonald's workers didn't fall for it and called police.
Sheriff's deputies in Pinellas County, Florida said workers at a McDonald's called police to report a man who flashed a fake gun and badge in the drive-thru to get free food. Authorities said 33-year-old Joseph Pineda told workers that he had just come from a police sting and didn't have his wallet on him. When deputies showed up, Pineda ignored their commands to show his hands but ended up surrendering at gunpoint. He was charged with impersonating a police officer and improper exhibition of a firearm. (AP)
