Don't do anything on April Fools' Day that can get you fired or arrested. Authorities in Hampton, VA spent a frustrating portion of Monday morning investigating the report of a robbery at a Waffle House, only to learn that it was all a joke, courtesy of Susan Alexandria Tinker.

Tinker, 20, reportedly called about a robbery that never took place at the Waffle House where she works. Her April Fools' Day joke backfired, and now she has egg on her face. She was arrested and charged with falsely summoning police, and now faces up to a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. 

Oh, and she was fired. Her week sucks right now, and it's all her fault.
