Gary Thompson can often be seen begging for money from this wheelchair outside the Lexington, Kentucky courthouse.

Speaking in slurred speech, he asks passersby to donate a little cash, claiming to have sustained brain damage in an accident.

But a local news station caught wind of a rumor that Thompson may have been faking his disability. What happens next is priceless.

“Yeah, you got me,” a wheelchair-bound Thompson tells the reporter in pitch perfect speech. “You guys are good.”

Thomspon isn’t the least bit remorseful saying he’ll continue faking the disability to beg.

If that doesn’t get your blood boiling listen to this, Thompson used to be a millionaire.

He won $2.4 million from Honda after a motorcycle wreck.

It left him with limited mobility, but no brain damage.

However, he and his family reportedly blew through the money.
