Man who placed brown pube in his curry to avoid paying jailed
LEE Tyers was recorded by a camera spicing his curry with his public hairs. Mr Tyers, 40, was dining in Jamals Indian Restaurant, Middlesbrough, when he commended a staff member’s attention to the pubes in what remained of his lamb bhuna.
One problem. As the eatery’s Jamal Chowdhury indicated, the pube was brown and all the staff had natural black hair. The collars and cuffs did not match. Mr Tyers left without setting the bill. Mr Chowdary showed police the CCTV footage.
Mr Chowdhury tells the Northern Echo:
“He showed me his plate and I said I gave you a clean plate. He had eaten everything but then on the side of the plate there was some brown hair. It was separate and not mixed into the food. I took it under the light and showed him it was brown hair and said that all the staff in the restaurant have black hair.”
At Teesside Magistrates Court, Tyers was found guilty of fraud by false representation and was sentenced to 14 days in jail and ordered to pay £39.55 in compensation.
While the rest of us marvel at his stupidity, we can also wonder why a restaurant uses CCTV to record its diners eating. Is there a website specialising in that sort of thing?
