Bloomington, Ind. (AP) -- An Indiana man's taste for steak, and non-payment, has him in trouble with the law.
The man who became known as the Gin And Tonic Bandit went to the same restaurant four Wednesdays in a row, ordered two drinks and a rib-eye steak, then skipped out on his $25.96 bill.
When he tried to do it this week, his luck ran out.
When his server presented the bill, the claimed he needed to use the bathroom as he always did. But when he walked out of the restaurant, four employees were waiting for him. After being told the restaurant didn't take checks, the man ran but police caught him. He's facing charges of theft and resisting law enforcement.
