Guy Fieri's Evil Twin Robbed a Florida Sports Bar

He really wanted to go to Flavortown, apparently.

Has Guy Fieri blown through all his Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives money and moved on to a life of crime? No, the critically acclaimed restaurateur is not on the lam — but as news station WTSP points out, "someone looking a lot like him" burglarized Ferg's Sports Bar in St. Petersburg, Florida last month.

The St. Pete police department posted video surveillance stills to Twitter, hoping someone might identify the platinum-tipped bandit:

According to WFLA, the Fieri lookalike broke into the restaurant on the night of September 27, and stole food from the kitchen as well as "several bottles of alcohol" from the patio bar. He is described as follows: "He is a white male between 30 and 45 years old. He’s between 5’8" and 6’0" tall, and weighs between 250 and 300 pounds. He may have blonde hair and a goatee. He has tattoos on both upper arms." Sound like someone else you know?

While Fieri has managed to stay on the right side of the law, the Donkey Sauce creator did have to appear in court at one point: In 2013 he testified at the trial of the teen who stole his beloved yellow Lamborghini.
