A Waffle House employee was arrested for allegedly calling in a false robbery as part of an April Fool's day prank.
Susan Tinker, of Hampton, Va., is accused of calling 911 and falsely reporting a crime, local station WAVY reported.
"Once the manager arrived and surveillance footage was reviewed, it was determined the whole thing was a hoax as an April Fools Day joke," according to WAVY.
Tinker, 20, was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for falsely summoning police.
Perhaps Tinker can commiserate with another young April Fool's reveler who was arrested.
Mark Foreman, 21, allegedly sent a text to his girlfriend that a Friendly's restaurant was being robbed, and police were called to investigate. But he was released from prison, and the charges against him "aren't clear," according to NBC Connecticut.
