Rapper 'chased by police on jet skis after jumping in ocean to avoid paying seafood bill'
A court has heard that a man jumped into the sea to avoid paying his €440 seafood bill.
Terry Peck - who goes by the nickname 2pec - devoured two lobsters, a baby octopus, 21 vodka oyster shots and a few bottles of beer at a lavish restaurant in the Gold Coast, Australia, on Sunday before he made a run for it without covering the costs.
However, Mr Peck didn't get very far as police managed to detain him and charged him with one count of stealing and two counts of serious assault for resisting arrest after they were forced to chase him around the ocean on jet skis.
According to the Courier Mail newspaper, it became known when he appeared in court that Mr Peck was already on parole for an unrelated offence.
Despite his behaviour, Magistrate Joan White granted Mr Peck bail and he's set to appear in court on May 4.
