She told police that Jesus was her husband though she had no marriage license to prove it.

Authorities were left scratching their heads after a woman in Oklahoma walked out on her bill, telling the restaurant and police that her husband, Jesus Christ, would be coming to pick up the tab. According to local ABC news station KSWO, "Kristi Rhines ordered several alcoholic drinks and food at El Chico" before telling restaurant staff that she had no money to pay for her bill. Rhines insisted, however, that Jesus Christ was her husband — though she had no marriage license to prove it — and that he would be in shortly to pay for her meal.

Unfortunately for Rhines, El Chico has no affiliation with Dana Parris' restaurant Just Cooking where diners can pay what they think God would want them to pay.

After police confirmed that Rhines had no money to pay for her tab, she was arrested and booked into the local jail on fraudOne wonders if Rhines tried to pray for a discount.
