The Baltimore Sun explains: "Unable to rouse him, the restaurant staff would call 911, and the scammer was limoed off by paramedics to the nearest emergency room. From there, depending on whether the restaurant was pressing charges, [he'd] either quietly absconded or was arrested by the police." [Baltimore Sun]
