    PACIFIC, Missouri (KMOV) — A Missouri restaurant has filed stealing charges against a customer who was seen putting a bug onto her plate and leaving without paying.

In a social media post Thursday, El Agave Pacific wrote that someone claimed to find a bug in the last few bites of their meal and decided to bad mouth the restaurant. The restaurant wrote that the server went to get a manager and the woman left without paying.

According to the restaurant, surveillance video showed the woman getting the bug from her purse and putting it on her plate. The restaurant said the bill was for $31.

“It is far too easy to bad mouth and hurt businesses on social media. And those who joined her bandwagon and cheered her on and even worse, shared her lies, you’re just as big of a problem as she is. It needs to stop,” read a portion of their Facebook post.

El Agave Pacific said they have filed stealing charges and will consult an attorney.
