A DINE-AND-DASH escapade went bad when two of the fleeing diners left
their purses behind.

The Springfield News-Leader reported that no charges had been filed as of
midweek against the three women who ran from a Waffle House restaurant on
Sunday morning without paying their $US39 ($43.73) bill.

The general manager said the women seemed intoxicated or under the
influence of drugs.

The Springfield paper said a short time after fleeing, one of the women
returned to the restaurant and demanded the purses.

The manager said he told the woman she needed to wait for police to
arrive, but she left.

A police report said the purses contained identifying documents, along
with what appeared to be a cheque stub from another Waffle House, in
Arkansas.
