An aspiring rapper jumped into the ocean to avoid paying for his massive seafood dinner at a restaurant in Australia, court documents said.
Terry Peck, who goes by 2pec, was dining at Main Beach's Omeros Bros Restaurant in Queensland on Sunday when he racked up a $450 bill, according to Australian Broadcasting Corporation News. Peck's meal allegedly included two lobsters, 17 oyster shooters, a baby octopus and several beers.
When he found out how much the bill was, he allegedly sprinted from the restaurant to the beach and then swam into the ocean. Two police officers jumped on a jet ski to get him back to shore, according to the report.
Peck, 33, was arrested and charged with theft and assault on a police officer. He appeared in court on Monday and claimed he left the restaurant before paying to help a friend who was about to give birth on the beach.
Peck also called the food "overpriced" and complained that the lobsters were "overcooked" in court, Australian Broadcasting Corporation News reported.
The seafood restaurant defended the restaurant's food.
"We cook our lobsters perfectly here — we pride ourselves on cooking our lobsters perfectly," restaurant spokesman Mark Hunnybun said.
Peck is scheduled to appear back in court on May 4.
