MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A man and a woman broke $100 worth of glasses and plates after being improperly charged $22 on a $17 bill at Hooters Wednesday, according to a Myrtle Beach Police report.

Police responded to the Hooters at 3901 N. Kings Highway and spoke to the manager, who said two customers were upset with their bill and began throwing items around the restaurant.

The manager said the diners had been improperly charged $22 on a $17 bill, and while the restaurant was in the process of fixing the bill, the customers swiped everything off their table onto the ground. It was estimated that about six glasses and five plates, along with food, was thrown onto the ground. The manager estimated the value of the damaged items was about $100.

The police report states the customers left the restaurant in a vehicle with a Georgia license plate. The manager said there were no cameras in the section where the customer was seated, but was able to recall the last name on the debit card used by one of the customers.
