Dine and dashes

One of Daniel's many unpaid tabs seen here on 6/17/22, this one was notably expensive totaling at over $47.66

Mainly beginning during the Homeless arc, Daniel has been frequently ordering food from restaurants and leaving without paying for his meals. He would post his receipts to his TikTok account in hopes of people paying for his meals, or tell the employees of the establishments that his mentor, Bob Proctor, or another caretaker would pay for them, which they most likely never did.

Some of these meals were very expensive, especially for a homeless person, sometimes totaling over $50. Though even if money was graciously donated to him via Cashapp to pay for these meals, he still refused to pay regardless.

Daniel has done this to at least over a dozen restaurants within the Denver area, many of which declined to press charges against him and instead banned him from their locations.

One restaurant apparently did press charges though, that being a Hard Rock Café located in the 16th Street Mall in Denver, Colorado. The café apparently filed charges of petty theft on May 13, 2022 as seen through Denver County Court Records. The charges were later dropped.

Cheesecake Factory[edit | edit source]

On July 6th, 2022 a Reddit user interviewed Daniel Larson about his music career. They originally met at Cheesecake Factory for the interview but were kicked out because Daniel had an unpaid tab. Supposedly Daniel claimed that his caretaker was supposed to pay.

On January 19 2023 while at a different Cheesecake Factory in Anaheim, CA Daniel was arrested during a dine and dash attempt. He claimed that a manager told him that he couldn't leave until $100 was paid. Daniel attempted to get fans to donate for his $55.92 bill but apparently was unsuccessful as Daniel later appeared on Anaheim's "who's in jail" search.

The next day, after Daniel was released, he uploaded multiple videos explaining the situation. Daniel claims his original plan was to "have dinner, charge my phone, and go live" as apparently instructed by Ox.

The police informed Daniel that he is not allowed to do this without prior permission from the restaurant. Daniel claims that the restaurant was okay with his stream, but because the restaurant got so busy "out of the blue" and two fans came in, "and caused issues" that is why he was arrested. He has not elaborated on what issues the two fans caused. Daniel claims that his check was eventually paid for by "a fan, who is also my lawyer" though Daniel still received a "defrauding an innkeeper" charge as well as a $950 fine.
