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.

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."
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.
A member of the Westboro Baptist Chuch, an extremist religious clan notorious for picketing the funerals of servicemen, Roger Ebert, and most recently, Boston Marathon victims, has linked the deadly Oklahoma tornado to Jason Collins' decision to come out. The 34-year-old NBA player recently made headlines by becoming the first openly gay athlete in a major American team sport.
Fred Phelps Jr., the son of Westboro's leader Fred Phelps, tweeted Monday that God "smashed" Oklahoma when Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant said he supported Collins.
"OK Thunder's Durant flips God by praising f** Collins. God smashes OK. You do the math," Phelps Jr., said.
"God's wonderful wrath in Oklahoma reminds me: #GodCursesUForF**Marriage #GodIsYourTerrorist #GodWillRepay #GodAvengesHisPeople #GodH8sU," he continued later.
This isn't the first time anyone has blamed severe weather on homosexuality. Christian chaplain John McTernan said in 2012 that Hurricane Sandy was caused by the "homosexual agendas" of both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

Thousands of motorists were photographed running red lights since cameras were installed at Jacksonville intersections earlier this year.
o far this year, a company called Redflex has installed 17 of the cameras at some of the city's most dangerous junctions. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office reviews the photos taken by Redflex and decides whether or not the driver was in the wrong.
In the first month and a half since the cameras were installed, 2,869 violations have been sent to drivers.
"If I reduce crashes, then I know that's going to reduce injuries," JSO Director Micheal Edwards said. "If I reduce injuries, that's going to reduce the number of fatalities we have in this city."
Edwards says it's still very early for a thorough report card because the cameras have only been active for a couple months at most. But red light cameras have been reducing crashes.
