Diner Expects 'Jesus' To Pay Buffet Bill: Police

Diner Expects 'Jesus' To Pay Buffet Bill

April Lee Yates, 51, was arrested Sunday for allegedly refusing pay for a $26 seafood buffet at Bennetts Calabash in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Police arrived after employees said she'd been at the restaurant for four hours and was disturbing other patrons, according to CountOn2.com. Yates also allegedly refused to pay for her meal, saying she had no money.

Officers said when Yates was asked what she had planned to do about the bill, she told them that Jesus would pay it for her, according to WBMF TV.

No one named Jesus came forward with the loot.

At that point, Yates was arrested and charged with defrauding a restaurant. She was taken to the Myrtle Beach Jail.

Yates isn't the first person to try and stick God with their restaurant bill.

Last October, Kristi Rhines of Lawton, Oklahoma, told employees at El Chico Mexican Restaurant that her husband, "Jesus," would be back soon and “be able to walk in and produce U.S. currency to pay for her bill,” according to RawStory.

She too was arrested and accused of defrauding a restaurant.
