Man Swims Away To Avoid Paying Huge $600 Seafood Restaurant Bill

Do you love seafood? I bet not as much as this man, who was willing to risk jail time to get away from his restaurant bill.

Terry Peck, an aspiring rapper known as "2Pec," wracked up a $621 bill at Omeros Bros Restaurant on his seafood meal. The 33-year-old man from the Gold Coast downed two lobsters, a baby octopus, 21 vodka oyster shots and a few Corona beers.

Instead of sticking around to pay, Terry ran out the door before servers could stop him and dove into the ocean. Police eventually tracked him down and when he refused to come ashore, they caught up to him using jet skis. They arrested him out on the ocean and charged him with stealing and assault (which probably occurred at the time of his arrest).

According to reports, Terry was already on parole when he fled the swanky restaurant. When the Magistrate heard how much he'd eaten before being caught, she said: "My God! By himself?"

Peck's only response to all this? He claims the lobster was overcooked.
