Ihop employees were shocked when a man flashed a police badged, pulled down his pants and demanded a free meal, according to police reports in Florida.

Matt Skytta wanted a free meal on Friday, so he thought that a badge from the Orlando Police Department, will persuade employees to give him a free food.

When that did not work, Skytta dropped his pants and showed his behind.

Orlando Police responded to the Ihop located on East Colonial Drive. Employees told police that Skytta has been coming to the restaurant for several days, claiming that he is a police officer and demanding free food.

During the most recent incident, which took place around 1:00 a.m., Skytta ordered food, but then said that he had no money to pay.

A waiter asked Skytta if he had money to pay for his food, and Skytta replied: “No, but I’m a cop, and I get free food.”

Skytta, 55, then took out a OPD badge from his wallet.

The waiter asked Skytta to leave.

However, Skytta said: “I’m not going anywhere until you feed me.”

That is when they decided to call the police.

Skytta then dropped his pants and exposed himself to the server and customers, according to a police report.

Skytta was still in his car when police arrived.

Skytta was arrested on charges of impersonating a law enforcement officer, trespassing and disorderly conduct.
