According to Florida deputies some guy placed his order at the drive thru of a McDonald's. When the employee told him through the PA how much his order would cost, the guy said he was a law enforcement officer, did not have his wallet with him, and wanted his food free of charge. When he pulled around to the window he told the manager the same story. He repeated he was a police officer and added he had just come from a sting and didn't have his wallet. He then flashed a badge and showed a gun to the manager. Employees called 911 and that's when real cops showed up.
