Members of Fratello's Restaurant have dropped all charges against a group of ten people who recently walked out on a $460 bill, after a man from the group paid the bill in full.
The incident took place at about 8 p.m. July 14 and the manager on duty that day said the walk out appeared to be planned.
The group had ordered lobster tail and expensive drinks before getting up and exiting the restaurant, according to restaurant manager and witness Justin Bohn.
"It looked so rehearsed," Bohn said.
Bohn said a man at the head of the table snapped his fingers and everyone at the table got up and followed him out the door.
He added the man claimed he left without paying because a server had mixed up his order. Bohn said nearby patrons who had witnessed the incident told him the server had been "on top of them" the entire time they were at the restaurant.
Bohn and Trenton police each contacted a man from the group whose number was used to make reservations and explained the charges.
On July 15, the man returned to Fratello's and paid the bill in full.
Bohn said he believed the man who had snapped his fingers after claiming to have received bad service had orchestrated the walk out.
"It's unfortunate the guy who made the reservation had to pay," Bohn said.
The charges were dropped and the matter is settled according to the Trenton Police Department.
