The Iron Skillet in Texas City, Tex. has police arrest and jail man who gave his girlfriend food from his $7 buffet plate.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports

The old two-for-one buffet trick backfired.

Dan Linscomb, 40, of Texas City, Texas, ate the buffet at the Iron Skillet restaurant in northwest Atlanta on Oct. 21. He admitted, an Atlanta police report said, that his girlfriend "ate a couple bites from his plate."

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.

Linscomb got out of jail two days later after pleading guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct, Fulton County sheriff's Sgt. Nikita Hightower said.

Linscomb could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon. The Iron Skillet manager who was working when Linscomb was arrested, Jose Quintero, declined to comment.
