It is believed the man ate a large amount of seafood before running away

According to reports by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 2pec allegedly ate two lobsters, a baby octopus, 17 oyster shooters, and several beers at a restaurant before he left without paying.

Terry Peck is an aspiring Australian rapper who goes by 2pec, but he's now better known for an especially elaborate dine and dash.

Lifeguards took two police officers out on jet skis to pursue Peck and, when he refused to return to land, they arrested him the water. "They should be apologizing to me for the shell".

When speaking at the courthouse where he was charged Peck (who also performs as a rapper using the stage name "2pec") said that the restaurant overcooked the lobster he ordered.

He will appear in Southport Magistrates Court today.

Peck said: "My friend was over the beach and she was having a baby on the beach". According to BBC, the MC reportedly racked up almost $600 in food charges at the Omeros Bros restaurant, but allegedly dove into the water and swam away by the time it came to his table. He later said he was rushing to the aid of a pregnant friend, and that anyway, the lobster was a bit overcooked - which the restaurant's owner denied.

The restaurant's assistant manager Mark Hunnybun said their suspicions were raised when Peck continued ordering food and drinks after first arriving at 1:00pm on Sunday.

In his defense, Peck's lawyer explained that he has had an issue with alcohol.

The magistrate hearing the case was just as shocked as everyone else upon learning of Peck's epic dinner saga.
