Cops arrest woman in alleged restaurant rat scheme

APPLETON, Wis. - Appleton police have arrested a woman for allegedly bringing a rat into an upscale restaurant, claiming it was in her meal and then seeking $500,000 to keep quiet.

Sgt. Neal Rabas said the 41-year-old Appleton woman started a claim with Secura Insurance, saying she went to a doctor and had medical expenses.

Rabas said insurance investigators were suspicious so they contacted police.

Bob Doller, co-owner of The Seasons in Grand Chute, said rumors of the incident had negatively affected the business but they had to keep quiet while police investigated.
