ELKHART — An Elkhart man and his girlfriend are accused of dining and dashing at a string of local restaurants in recent weeks.

Ryan Hayes, 39, was arrested Tuesday and charged with resisting law enforcement in a vehicle and two counts of theft, all Level 6 felonies. Police say he and a woman skipped out on the bill at multiple restaurants in August and September, which he allegedly claimed they did out of hunger.

It appears this couple have an expensive pallet. I don't understand how one gets arrested, but not the other.
