Being behind on rent can be a pain, millions upon millions of people get behind on rent every month — it happens — it’s life. However, if you find yourself in that situation, you probably don’t want to handle it like this guy did.

One Maine landlord went to collect rent from one of his tenants. When he arrived at the apartment, he found his tenant, on the floor, ‘unresponsive’. The landlord quickly called 911 and an ambulance showed up shortly after.

Once emergency officials assessed the situation, they found that 28-year-old Ted Zarins, was conscious and didn’t need medical care at all, he was faking it in order to get out of speaking with his landlord about owed rent.

The officers also discovered there was an outstanding warrant for Zarins, who allegedly failed to appear in court with regard to a criminal threatening charge.

Officers arrested Zarins and took him to jail — where the rent is free!
