Say it ain't so!
A 33-year-old man ate two lobsters, downed 17 vodka oyster shots and six Coronas at a Gold Coast restaurant before dodging the bill and running into the surf, police allege.
Staff called the police, who rode into the water on Jet Skis to coax Peck - a rapper who performs as "2pec" when he's not drunkenly dining and dashing - back onto dry land.
We can feel your eye roll from here.
"There was oyster shell in the oyster [shot] and he said he was going to take off the bill", Peck said outside court.
Peck is expected to appear in court again on 4 May.
"The lobster was a bit overcooked", he said.
Peck was caught by police on jet skis and claimed he ran to help a pregnant friend who was in labor on the beach.
Magistrate Joan White granted bail, but not before saying, "Oh God!" After giving Omeros Bros the ol' dine-n-dash, 2pec chose to flee into the welcoming embrace of the sea.
The restaurant's assistant manager, Mark Hunnybun, denied the claim about the lobsters being poorly cooked, and told ABC: "We cook our lobsters perfectly here-we pride ourselves on cooking our lobsters perfectly". According to Peck, the food at Omeros Bros Seafood Restaurant at Main Beach was disappointing. Peck contends he left not to avoid paying, but rather to find a friend who was allegedly giving birth on the nearby beach. His lawyer told the court he has a serious problem with alcohol, which contributed to the incident.
The magistrate hearing the case was just as shocked as everyone else upon learning of Peck's epic dinner saga.
