Man Jumped into River to Skip Out on Restaurant Bill, Police Say

A man hopped into a river to avoid a restaurant bill on Thursday, said police in Algonquin, Illinois.

The suspect had eaten at a pizza place in the Chicago suburb, but instead of paying, he allegedly ran and escaped into the water a few blocks away, leaving the restaurant high and dry, WGN reported.

The investigation is ongoing.

In another tale of dine-and-dashing, a California man has been accused of leaving several dates with the restaurant bill.
