The Atlanta Journal-Constitution warns buffet lovers to get their own plate or face the consequences:
When he was charged for two $7 buffet meals, Linscomb refused to pay for one of them. He said that “there were no signs in the restaurant that said someone could not have some food off your plate,” the report said.
The restaurant staff called police, who came to the restaurant on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway and arrested Linscomb on a charge of theft of services. He was taken to Fulton County Jail.
He needed signs? The story ends after he plead guilty to disorderly conduct (i.e. buffet terrorism), which suggests a big fight ensued over $7 for “a couple bites”. I suspect there is more to this because at face value it sounds completely ridiculous.
