Lawyer: NJ Man Agrees To Pay Up In $4,000 Pizza Prank

NEW YORK (AP) — A man wearing a Bob Dylan backstage pass who ordered 178 pizzas from a Massachusetts pizza parlor but never picked them up has agreed to hand over the dough.

A lawyer for the New Jersey man says his client is a “decent enough” guy with no criminal record who felt bad about the prank.

Attorney Sean Cleary did not reveal his client’s name and did not say how much he’ll repay. The pizzas he ordered were worth about $4,000.

Workers at Antonio’s in the college town of Amherst stayed until 5:30 a.m. on Nov. 20 making the pies. The man ordered them shortly after a Dylan concert at the nearby University of Massachusetts.

He said he would return in several hours and deliver them to Dylan’s crew. But he never returned and the manager called police.

Some pizzas were given away, but most were thrown out.

    Ethan Kavet, the pizza place was most definitely NOT to blame. The responsibility rests solely with the loser who ordered the pizzas. Don’t blame the victim for this.

    I wonder what in the world this guy was thinking? It’s refered to as a “prank” as though he never intended to pick up the pizzas, but it seems bizarre.

    I’ve lived in NJ/NY for most of my 30 years, other than the 4 that I spent in Amherst, and Antonio’s is the best pizza that I’ve ever eaten, bar none. It’s fantastic to hear that they’re getting repaid by this idiot who tried to cost an independent pizza joint 4 grand. They may have been naive, but naivete can be what keeps a sleepy small town great.

    What idiots at the Pizza place. Credit card or cash before I would make 178 pizza’s. They need to do business a little better.

    Not even a small down payment?
    A red flag should have gone up.
    Most ,if not all,restaurants require a credit card for an order of that size at the time of ordering The management is partially to blame.
