Staggering Dine & Dash: UK Restaurant Out $919 Bill

When London's L'Autre Pied Restaurant took a reservation for two under the name "Lupin," they (understandably) missed the irony of the name. The couple ran up a bill for 572.74 (409 of it on two bottles of champagne), went outside for a cigarette, and then never came back...

The Guardian points out, "What may make the case more intriguing is that the name in which the pair booked the table, Lupin, echoes that of the fictional Arsene Lupin – a stylish Gallic gentleman thief whose adversaries, in a series of novels by Maurice LeBlanc, are invariably portrayed as rather worse villains than him.
The Metropolitan police confirmed they were investigating."
