Scott Township police said they cited a man for impersonating an Allegheny County police detective after he demanded free food at a local McDonald's.
Charles Jones was cited on a misdemeanor charge of impersonating a public servant, police said.
Investigators said Jones demanded free food from staff at a McDonald's restaurant on Route 50.
Channel 11's Renee Kaminski spoke to Jones on Tuesday who said the charges are a misunderstanding.
Jones claims that he would tease workers at the restaurant but never claimed to be an Allegheny County police detective.
"Do I look like I can't afford to buy my own hamburger?" Jones said to Kaminski.
Jones said he works as a private investigator and security guard.
