Cops drop charges against non-tipping college students


Charges against two Pennsylvania college students arrested last month for failing to leave a tip were dropped Monday by local authorities, according to an Allentown, Pa., newspaper.

John P. Wagner, 24 and Leslie A. Pope, 22, were charged with theft of services after they wouldn't pay the more than $16 tip they were charged by Lehigh Pub, a restaurant near Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. Both had refused to pay the gratuity for what they claimed was awful service, including having to get their own silverware and drink refills. Their waitress also reportedly took a cigarette break instead of attending to them.
