Ap Odd News
Forgot the check and the purse
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A dine-and-dash escapade went bad when two of the fleeing diners left their purses behind. The Springfield News-Leader reported that no charges had been filed as of midweek against the three women who ran from a Waffle House restaurant Sunday morning without paying their $39 bill. The general manager said the women seemed intoxicated or under the influence of drugs.

The Springfield paper said a short time after fleeing, one of the women returned to the store and demanded the purses.
The manager said he told the woman she needed to wait for police to arrive, but she left.

A police report said the purses contained identifying documents, along with what appeared to be a check stub from another Waffle House in Arkansas.
