A dinner guest in Lawton, Okla. reportedly told the managers of El Chico restaurant that her husband, Jesus Christ, was on his way to settle the tab that she could not pay, according to ABC news affiliate KSWO.
The patron, a guest named Kristi Rhines, “ordered several alcoholic drinks and food” at the restaurant, and later said that she was unable to pay for anything.
She told restaurant staff that her husband was on the way.
“When asked about her husband, she told them she was legally married to Jesus Christ, but had no marriage license,” reports KSWO. “She also told management that Jesus would be able to walk in and produce U.S. currency to pay for her bill.”
Sadly, “Police confirmed that Rhines had no way of paying for her tab,” and booked the woman in a local jail for fraud.
