We’ve all heard of 2pac, right? But what about 2Pec? No, no one’s heard of him. Until now. (VIDEO BELOW ARTICLE)
The Australian rapper (apparently they have those now) has hit the headlines. But not because of his music. Oh no. 2pec – real name Terry Peck – is the talk of the town after he ate a huge feast at a seafood restaurant in Gold Coast, Australia, and ran away without paying. His way out? THE OCEAN.
According to ABC News, the man in question was 33-year-old Terry Peck – an aspiring rapper who goes by the name 2pec – and he ordered lobsters, oyster shooters, a baby octopus and several beers at Omeros Bros Restaurant in Queensland before scarpering.
He was chased by restaurant staff onto Main Beach, where he then jumped into the ocean.
Police attempted to coax him out to no avail and so were towed out on the back of a jet-ski and arrested him in the middle of the waters.
According to ABC, having being granted bail at the hearing, Peck described lobsters as “overcooked” and claimed there was oyster shell left in his oyster shot.
Police said a man was charged with stealing and two counts of serious assault of a police officer, and appeared in the Southport Magistrates Court on Monday.
He’ll be returning to court on May 4. Check out the video below and please share:
