If you’re frustrated by poor service at a restaurant, think twice before you decide to not tip. You may be in for a bit more than just a dirty look from the waiter.
Pope and John Wagner were hauled away by police and charged with theft for not paying the mandatory 18 percent gratuity totaling $16 after eating at the Lehigh Pub in Bethlehem, Pa. with six friends.
Pope claimed that they had to wait nearly an hour for their order and that she had to get napkins and silverware for the table
Police charged them with theft since the gratuity was part of the actual bill. However, it is doubtful that the charges will hold up in front of a judge.

You know gratuity on the bill does NOT go to the waitor/waitress/bartender, it goes to the owner.
Only real tips that YOU give go to the service person.
It's a scam, anyone living in philly should do what they can for bad word of mouth.
This should not be tolerated
