A 36-year-old man was arrested on Sunday for refusing to pay a restaurant bill worth 8,950 yen in Fukushima City, Fukushima Prefecture, after he stayed at a “Denny's” restaurant for 12 hours, police said Tuesday.
According to police, Kenji Sato was arrested after he ordered about 20 items on the menu worth 8,950 yen, and then refused to pay. Sato entered the restaurant at 11 a.m. on Sunday and stayed until 12 midnight without paying the bill. When the restaurant manager asked him to pay, Sato told him he had no money and requested him to call police.
Police said Sato has been in trouble with the law before, including one time when he sneaked into a house when he had no place to sleep.© News reports
