For $525, I hope they still let him keep the cup.

Christopher Lewis, a construction worker from North Charleston, South Carolina was in the VA Medical Center cafeteria in downtown Charleston for his lunch break when he was arrested for "theft of government property" totalling 89¢. "As I was filling my cup up, I turned to walk off and a fella grabbed me by the arm and asked me was I gonna pay for that, and I told him I wasn't aware I had to pay for that," said Lewis. According to the hospital, the cafeteria is full of signs stating the refill policy, and the officer claims Lewis has done this multiple times without paying (although Lewis readily admitted to that).
