Customer agrees to pay restaurant bill

A couple who walked out on their bill Sunday at an Augusta restaurant was found on Tuesday and an agreement was reached to pay the bill.

A deputy met with a representative of Miyako's steakhouse on Washington Road Tuesday afternoon, who told him he had located the suspect at a nearby apartment complex on Skinner Mill Road, according to a Richmond County sheriff's report.

The suspect, Quiniwaitae Varner, told the deputy they left the restaurant because they were promised a discounted meal after water was spilled on his girlfriend's shirt. When they were given a ticket for full price of $58, they walked out, according to a report.

The Miyako's representative said he wouldn't press charges if the tab was paid in full and Varner agreed to do so.
