Man with split personality realises he was the robber after seeing news report

LEECHBURG (Pennsylvania) - Police said a western Pennsylvania man who claims to have split personalities confessed to robbing a Chinese restaurant after reading about it in the newspaper and realising he was the person who did it. Online court records don't list an attorney for 23-year-old Timothy Beer, of Leechburg, who's been jailed since surrendering in Sunday's robbery of the China King Restaurant about 35 miles (56km) north-east of Pittsburgh. Beer came to the police station on Tuesday, saying he wasn't feeling well and "did something stupid". Beer told police he ordered food and became angry when he perceived the person waiting on him was continuing to speak Chinese. The next thing Beer remembered, he was playing video games at his cousin's home. But he said that he later realised he committed the robbery when he read about it in Tuesday's Valley News Dispatch.
