Rapper Tries To Avoid Restaurant Bill By Jumping Into The Water

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. Imagine the song an Australian rapper can compose after being arrested for skipping a restaurant bill. Terry Peck, also known as 2Peck, owed 450 bucks and jumped into the ocean to avoid paying - true story. Police chased him down on jet skis. Mr. Peck allegedly ate two lobsters and a baby octopus chased with 21 vodka oyster shots and some beer. He explained his failure to pay by saying the lobsters were overcooked. It's MORNING EDITION.
