A 33-year-old man will face court following an alleged dine-and-dash incident in Adelaide last night.
The incident unfolded at 9.30pm, when a man dining at a restaurant on Gouger Street tried to leave without paying for his meal.
Video filmed by a witness outside the Concubine restaurant showed staff restraining the man.
The man was able to flee the area following a scuffle but staff and witnesses provided a detailed description of the man to police.
Police tracked the man via CCTV and finding him a short time later on Moonta Street.
The owner of the restaurant said some staff were injured during the scuffle.
"We regret having the incident happen," the owner said in a statement.
"It was a spur of the moment decision to try and restrain him for the police as we were immensely upset that someone came in and racked up a huge bill and tried to run off."
A man from Salisbury was reported for theft and he will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.
