Fla. woman chooses to go jail over $7.45 bill

FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - A woman decided to go to jail rather than pay
her bill at a Fort Pierce Waffle House restaurant. The total she went to jail
over: $7.45. According to a police report, Maryanne O'Neill, 66, ordered
coffee and a sandwich at a Waffle House restaurant on Saturday but
refused to pay the bill.

The report said an officer asked her to pay or go to jail and she refused.

A jail official said she was released Monday from the St. Lucie County Jail.

She was charged with obtaining food or lodging with intent to defraud, a
second degree misdemeanor.
If convicted of a second degree misdemeanor she could face up to 60
days in jail and a fine of $500.
