Italian man pretended to be mafia member to get free croissants

In the Italian city of Salerno, 52 year-old Ubaldo Citarella got fresh pastry and drinks by telling the bartender he was a member of the Camorra clan. When a tender demanded payment, the man put a gasoline can next to the doors of the establishment, hinting to a possibility of an arson.

According to The Local newspaper, the bartender soon got tired of his customer’s behavior and contacted the police. The self-pronounced mafioso was detained shortly after.
