Oh that's a nice headlock sir!
I see that you know your Judo well.
Tetta and farewell.
A former chef who dines at expensive restaurants and then pleads poverty has been convicted for the 54th time of refusing to pay for a meal.
Paul Charles Dozsa, 48, dubbed ''the restaurant runner'' by local newspapers, was fined $160 on Monday for refusing to pay a $50 bill at a Chinese restaurant.
The following day, he dined out at the five-star Sheraton-Wentworth hotel, then told the staff he could not pay the $48 cheque. He was fined $200 for that offense on Wednesday and ordered to compensate the restaurant.
Dozsa pleaded guilty to the charges, saying he was ''in a state of inebriation."
