Cleveland’s most camera-ready hero may now also be its best fed.
More than a dozen Ohio restaurants and at least one in Pennsylvania have pledged free burgers for life to Charles Ramsey, the Big Mac-munching man who was credited with helping a woman escape from the home where she had been held captive, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Ramsey mentioned in numerous interviews earlier this month that he had been chowing down on a McDonald's burger when he heard screams from the house across the street, spurring the fast-food giant to tweet they would “be in touch.”
The hometown hamburger homages began with an 8-ounce Angus beef patty with a secret sauce devised by Chris Hodgson, chef at the downtown restaurant where Ramsey works as a dishwasher.

The jury in the Jodi Arias murder case is unable to reach a unanimous decision on her sentence. The Phoenix jury told the judge they were hopelessly deadlocked in deciding whether Arias should receive the death penalty or life in prison. Arias was convicted of stabbing Travis Alexander multiple times, slashing his throat and shooting him. The retrial in the penalty phase will be July 18th.
The case has garnered national attention due to the severity of the crime and the seedy testimony on the stand. Arias had recently said during a TV interview she preferred the death penalty to life in prison, but backtracked in the penalty phase. She pleaded with the jury for life in prison and touted the good things she could do behind bars.
In a recent interview with the LA Times, Montel Jordan discussed his upbringing and the evolution to being a megachurch pastor at a multicultural non-denominational church.
Despite his surroundings, he didn't get involved with gangs. "I was more fearful of my dad than I was the Crips and Bloods," he says. "If we even thought about gangbanging or being around that, he would take us out first."
Instead, Montell's life revolved around the Baptist church. The grandmother of a local Crips leader was a part of the same congregation, which gave Jordan immunity. "That was a Crip neighborhood," he adds. "They knew we were church kids, so it was almost like we had a pass, we had protective covering, we could walk all through the neighborhood."
