ROME, Ga., Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Police in Georgia said a man dressed as Burger King's mascot entered a McDonald's restaurant and handed out free food.

Officers said they were called to the McDonald's in Rome, Ga., around 1 p.m. Sept. 17 by the restaurant's manager, who told them a man dressed in the king costume of the rival chain's mascot had come into the store and handed out free burgers to customers, the Rome News-Tribune reported Tuesday.

The manager said the man claimed to be collecting money for charity, but did not collect any funds while inside the McDonald's. She said he left in a white Acura and removed his mask, revealing the face of a middle aged white man with dark hair.

Video of the incident has been posted to YouTube.
