Two men who chose to skip out from a St. John's restaurant without paying for their meal are now facing more than just their bill.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said the two men, aged 40 and 53, left a St. John's restaurant around 1 a.m. Wednesday without paying.

The two were tracked down and arrested on charges of fraudulently obtaining food and lodging.

They also face charges of assault.

They were held in the lockup for a court appearance later Wednesday.
