Rapper 'Jumps Into Ocean To Avoid Paying Bill' At Seafood Restaurant
We've all had that moment when the bill comes at a restaurant and thought: "Holy shit, how the hell is it that expensive?"
Most of us, I'm pretty sure, would have just sucked it up and paid the bill - but apparently not this guy from Australia.
Rapper Terry Peck, who goes by the name 2Pec (yep), allegedly decided it wasn't his style to pay for a bill, not when he's got his street cred to uphold.

After downing two lobsters, a baby octopus and 21 vodka oyster shots at Gold Coast restaurant Omeros Brothers, Terry's bill came to a whopping £375 ($621 AUD).
It is claimed that 2Pec wiped his mouth, finished his Corona, then jumped into the ocean and tried to swim away.
But unfortunately for Terry, police jumped on their jet skis and chased him down before he got too far; albeit at a very slow pace.
The 33-year-old claims that he only jumped into the water because he heard his friend was having a baby.
He even went as far as saying that the lobster was a bit overcooked and the restaurant should be paying HIM.
When he was hauled in front of a judge to answer to two charges, Magistrate Joan White couldn't believe he ate all that food by himself.
Maybe this was all a ruse to get his album sales up - he's due back in court on May 4.
But at least Terry didn't hurt anyone in the process. That type of dining and dashing is reserved for Paul Gonzales - who seems like a bit of a low life.
The man asks women out for dinner at a fancy restaurant through dating apps and then orders a shit load of food and drink before running off.

His latest victim is so embarrassed she didn't want to be named and shamed, but she said that he ordered 'a glass of Pinot, a Caesar salad with a side of shrimp, a steak, and a baked potato'.
With just half a potato left, Gonzales excused himself to take a call on his cell phone - and never returned.
"The waiter came back and said 'he's not out there, is this a first date?'," she told CBS Los Angeles.
"And I said, 'Yes, this is a first blind date', and he said, 'he's gone'."
Brutal. Luckily, the restaurant let her off and she didn't have to pay for his meal.
It seems that Paul Gonzales is pushing his luck now and he's well known for his antics. Diane Guilmette came forward after a similarly disastrous date with the dine-and-dash man. She met him on dating app Plenty of Fish and he asked her out to a steakhouse in LA.

Flattered, she accepted, despite admitting that the restaurant was a 'little pricey' for her. Again, Paul showed he had a hearty appetite and ordered a lot of expensive dishes and wine. Only the best for Paul.
And all seemed well and good during the dinner - until it came to the end of the meal. He went out to make a phone call (so rude on a date anyway) and didn't return.
Diane was stuck with a bill of £130 - mostly Paul's food. When she tried to contact him on the app, she found out he had blocked her. Ouch.
Ladies in the LA area, you've been warned.
