Props go out to the Westlake Police Department for proving itself the last protector of all that is upright and moral in this cardboard-flimsy social arrangement we call polite society. Why, you ask?

The other half of the date showed up with two friends. Robinson allegedly promised to pay the $95 bill, but at some point excused himself to make a phone call, and slipped out without paying or saying goodbye.
