It’s unclear what a 30-year-old police fugitive from Georgia ordered at Terrace at Trump, the rooftop bar on top of Trump Tower in River North, to run up a check of nearly $2K. $1,800 could pay for a lot of taco bowls or $81 cocktails at the swanky terrace. And that man, Robert Heath, is on the run from Chicago police after he was arrested last month and charged with felony theft for not paying his check, according to police.
Heath, police said, had no intent on paying his check after guzzling “a large amount of alcohol.” Crime in Wrigleyville first uncovered the incident. He had no cash on him, police said, as he racked up a tab of $1,838.90. Maybe they should build a wall as a theft deterrent.
The crimes don’t be appear politically motivated, as the March 10 arrest was among three Heath had in a week, according to police. Three days prior he was at Coco Pazzo Cafe, a block east of The Magnificent Mile in Streeterville, and pulled the same scheme on a much smaller check. His tab there reached $229, according to DNAinfo. But the crimes didn’t stop there. Heath allegedly pulled off a three-peat on March 10 when he refused to pay a $100 tab at Mother’s Too, the bar off Rush and Division in Gold Coast. The charges for those two incidents have been dropped for failures to appear in court, reported DNAinfo.
