Dining and dashing is a pretty scummy act, and one particular dirtbag had mastered it, going on multiple dates with women and leaving them with the bill as he disappeared into the dark night like Batman.
This dude, who sometimes goes by the name Dave Gonzales, has the scam on lock, attracting women on Bumble with his charming good looks, taking them out to dinner, then going outside to "take a call," and never coming back.
That's how it went down for one of his latest victims, as she went on a date with him at a BJ's Restaurant in Pasadena, Calif., according to CBSLA.
She told CBS that after Gonzales went outside for his call, "The waiter came back and said he’s not out there... ‘He’s gone.’”
This isn't the first time this guy has dined and dashed, as in August 2016 — this time going by the name Paul Gonzales — he did the deed at a restaurant in Long Beach, Calif. Gonzales ordered over $100-worth of food, went to the restroom, and never came back.
The LA County District Attorney's office said that Gonzales actually has two warrants for his arrest after not showing up to court for petty theft and driving without a valid license, so he's at least on the police's radar.
Still, he keeps duping these women, getting free meals, and looking like the biggest douchebag in California — and that's no easy title to obtain.
