Man Arrested for Low Tipping
Humberto A. Taveras aces a misdemeanor charge of theft of services after he and his fellow diners argued with Soprano's Italian and American Grill managers over the legality of requiring an 18 percent tip for large parties. He only tipped about 10 percent. Full Story.
I know I'd probably go straight to jail, as I usually tip low unless service is exceptional. I went to place here in Bend one time that added a 20% tip as part of the bill. We fought it, as the waiter was a butthead and totally not helpful to us at all. We gave a 10% tip directly to the chef, and made sure the waiter didn't get any of it.
