(WISC-TV) — A man claiming to have been sent by the Denny’s corporate offices faces charges after cooking his own cheeseburger and fries at the northeast Madison restaurant Tuesday afternoon, according to the Madison Police Department.

Police said the man, identified as James B. Summers, 52, of Madison, came into the restaurant at about 4:30 p.m. carrying a briefcase and wearing a maroon tie and long black trench coat.

He told workers that he was the new general manager and that he had worked for the restaurant chain for 30 years and was starting his new job right away.
