LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Dinner at a Japanese restaurant ended with a trip to jail when the man dining tried to pay for his meal with a counterfeit bill.
Louisville Metro police arrested Donald Jerome Sleets, 47, of Louisville, after they were called to Hiko A Mon at 416 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd around 10:45 p.m. Sunday. Restaurant employees say Sleets attempted to use a counterfeit $100 bill to pay his bill. When officers arrived they said Sleets threatened to shoot them in the head with an AK-47.
Sleets was booked into Louisville Metro Corrections on nine counts of possession of a forged instrument and four counts of terroristic threatening.
Sleets would only tell police that he had purchased the counterfeit money.
