2pec, or Terry Peck as he was named later in court, claimed that he had run to "help a friend give birth on the beach."

He also explained his behaviour by claiming that the lobsters were overcooked, before being charged with theft and assault. The restaurant later reputed this saying: "We pride ourselves on cooking our lobsters perfectly."
