April Fool: Waffle House Worker Busted For Calling 911 With Phony Robbery Report
In one of the day’s dumbest April Fool’s Day pranks, a Waffle House worker allegedly called 911 to falsely report that the eatery had just been robbed.
According to police, Susan Alexandria Tinker, 20, called around 6 AM to claim that the Hampton, Virginia eatery had been robbed. However, after officers arrived at the purported crime scene, they came to a different conclusion.
“Responding officers investigated the incident and determined that the complaint was a fabrication in celebration of ‘April Fool’s Day,'” investigators noted in a media release.
Tinker, pictured in the above mug shot, was arrested for falsely summoning police. If convicted of the misdemeanor count, she faces a maximum of 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $2500.
It is unclear how Tinker thought she could get away with the prank.
