A Detroit-area man is facing five years in jail after leaving his date in a restaurant and driving off in her car without paying the bill.
According to news reports, Terrance Dejuan McCoy was on a first date with a woman when he told her he left his wallet in her car and needed the keys to get it to pay the bill. He then sped off in the 2000 Chevrolet Impala. The woman admitted she did not have much information about her date other than that she met him at a Detroit casino and he told her his name was “Chris.” Police used a cell phone message McCoy sent to her, which included his photo and cell number, to track him down.
McCoy pleaded no contest to the charges. His defense attorney, Terri Antisdale, says McCoy is a “very nice man who made a bad decision.”
