Waitress hit by car chasing after dine and dash scam
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say a waitress chased four people who left a Southern California restaurant without paying their bill, then was hit by their car as the group fled.
Orange County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Jeff Hallock says the 19-year-old waitress suffered minor injuries in the 6 p.m. Sunday confrontation outside an Anaheim eatery.
Early Monday, authorities spotted a vehicle matching the description of the car in a motel parking lot and took four people into custody.
They were later booked. Their names were not immediately released.
Hallock says the driver is a 24-year-old man from Los Angeles County.
He says the woman tried to collect the bill and “at some point the vehicle took off and she was hit.”
