Talk about speed dating.
A California man is facing 10 felony counts for allegedly sneaking out on dates just before the waiter brings the check, authorities said Monday.
The article goes on to state the following:
Paul Guadalupe Gonzalez, 45, set up dates across southern California and would enjoy the meals before he’d disappear, the L.A. County District Attorney said, according to a news release.
“Eight women purportedly ended up paying the bill themselves, one in the belief that the defendant was going to pay her back, while in two other instances the restaurants picked up the check,” the prosecutor said in a statement.
ABC News reported that it tried repeatedly to contact Gonzales, but could not reach him. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
He was reportedly taken into custody on Saturday. If convicted, he faces up to 13 years in state prison, KTLA.com reported. He pleaded not guilty to extortion, grand theft and other charges. Gonzales is accused of defrauding the women of nearly $1,000.
For over a year, the headlines have been, “Dine-and-dash dater strikes again.” Now, reportedly, he has struck out. WATCH THE REPORT BELOW:
