LEECHBURG, Pa. - Police say a western Pennsylvania man who claims to have split personalities confessed to robbing a Chinese restaurant after reading about it in the newspaper and realizing 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 northeast of Pittsburgh.

Beer came to the police station 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 remembers, he was playing video games at his cousin's home - but says he later realized he committed the robbery when he read about it in Tuesday's Valley News Dispatch.
