Less than a week after being released from jail, Baltimore's notorious seizure-faking restaurant scammer is back behind bars after being caught skipping tabs at two more local restaurants. The Baltimore Sun's Richard Gorelick reports that Andrew Palmer pled guilty on Friday to once again faking seizures to get out of paying his restaurant tabs — a crime of which the Baltimore City State Attorney's office says he "has been convicted more than four dozen times."

Last month, six days after leaving jail for the same crime, Palmer faked a seizure to ditch his $61.29 tab at Shuckers Restaurant & Bar. Three days later, he did the same at Sullivan's Steakhouse on a $161.18 tab. He was sentenced time served for the first ditched tab, but got a year behind bars for the second. So breathe easy, Baltimore restaurants. For now.
