A woman from Springfield Township is in hot water after police said she called in a fake robbery to avoid paying her tab at a Gold Star Chili.

MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio – An Ohio woman is in hot water after she allegedly called the police to avoid paying her bill at a restaurant.

“She had came in, put her stuff at the table, went to the bathroom, came back, sat down as if she was going to dine in,” said Rubee Naser, the manager at Gold Star Chili.

Naser said 21-year-old Destiny Watson ordered two crispy chicken burritos, a big salad and a drink.

When it came time to pay the $20 tab, witnesses say Watson made excuses.

“(She) claimed that she was waiting for her mom to come pay,” Naser told WLWT.

Watson stayed for about three hours before she sneaked to the back and allegedly called 911.

WLWT reports that she told dispatchers that two armed men were robbing the store.

In all, 14 officers from three different police departments responded to the fake call.

Watson was arrested for disrupting public service, making false alarms and theft.
