LAWTON, Okla._Strange moments for a local restaurant Friday night when one patron couldn't pay for her dinner or drinks.

Police say Kristi Rhines ordered several alcoholic drinks and food at El Chico in Lawton but later said she had no way to pay for them. She told managers her husband was on his way to pick up the tab.

When asked about her husband, she told them she was legally married to Jesus Christ, but had no marriage license. She also told management that Jesus would be able to walk in and produce U.S. currency to pay for her bill.

Police confirmed that Rhines had no way of paying for her tab. She was booked into the Lawton City Jail on a complaint of fraud.
