CLEVELAND (AP) — A man who put aside his Big Mac to help rescue three women held captive in a Cleveland house says he's not endorsing a group of restaurants offering him free burgers for life.

The restaurant where Charles Ramsey worked as a dishwasher initially created a burger named in his honor. Then more than a dozen area eateries decided a larger tribute was due.

Ramsey says in a written statement released through his attorney on Friday he doesn't endorse the northeast Ohio restaurants that are offering burgers bearing his name or promoting a lifetime of free burgers for him.

The restaurant group tells The Plain Dealer newspaper it will drop the Ramsey burger from the menu. It says it's saddened he isn't taking the offer in the spirit intended.
