Some people will go to great lengths to avoid getting stuck with the check.
A Wisconsin man apparently faked heart attacks.
His scam unfolded last week after he hopped a cab to a mall and then pretended to have a heart attack, the AP reported.
He tried the same ruse a short time later to avoid a $23 bill for an Applebee's steak dinner.
The rescue workers took him to the hospital a doctor recognized him.
Maybe he should have tried a disguise to go along with his fake heart ailment.
The 52-year-old man was charged with defrauding a restaurant as a habitual criminal.
