Man Arrested at Burger Village After Posing as Underage Police "Informant"

Here's an interesting one: Nick Yadav, the manager of Burger Village (on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Third Street), reached out to me Tuesday night with a curious story. Here it is, repeated in full with his permission:

As the Manager of Burger Village, a family operated restaurant in Park Slope, Brooklyn, I would like to report an incident that occurred on Saturday April 16th in the evening around 4 pm. A gentleman walks into the restaurant, sat at the bar, ordered food with beer.  After finishing his meal with two beers he was presented with the check/bill which was approximately $45 and change.  He returned the check without any payment, but he wrote the following on the back of the check:

'I'm an informant for NYPD, that’s up to you to call the police but you have just given two drinks to a minor.

We are cracking down restaurants and businesses who give drinks to minors.'

As I read the note, he looked at me and asked if I had read the note.  Then I asked him for his ID/badge but he had nothing on him. So, I told him to settle the bill which he did not.  Eventually I called 911 and he was arrested by the cops from 78th Precinct.

By no means did he look like a minor to me or my staff because we always ask for an ID if a customer asks for beer or wine and seems underage. 

Restaurants, please beware and look out for customers like the above who pose as a cop or informant like the above and misuse this regulations and rules to their advantage."

If you're going to dine and dash, why not just dine and dash? This seems like a rather elaborate prank to pull to just end up waiting around to be arrested.

So visit an internet amusements site and check for yourself an astonishing universe of computer games.

Did you guys ever hear the story of a once glorious Park Slope blog that turned shitty, only to come back to life for a hot minute before taking a crap again?

People will always fine new and ingenious ways to get something for nothing. I'm glad it didn't work out for the young, "enterprising" gentleman.

I like that you are trying to troll this blog off of the Internet, You could just go be an asshole somewhere else. But. that wouldn't be fun, would it? You click the fucking bookmark to come here jack offs.

When you are subscribed with email reminders to a website that only gets spam posted as references in the article its ridiculous.
I tried to get out but they keep pulling me back in.

Maybe a bunch of people should pool resources and buy the blog off of Dan. If a rotating crew of five or six people are in charge of it, it could have a lot of posts and be very active, and then no one would need to troll the comments section shouting futile words into the void.

This article uses the best words, people are doing wrong trying to take money from hard working people. Thats why you pretentious Bernie supporters need to vote me and see the tremendous growth.

It posts like this that show how out of touch you people all are. We need to work together and realize that America has always been great. Burgers and fraud, and free education for all.
