Bob Dylan cleared of $3,900 pizza prank
A man claiming to be part of the singer-songwriter's crew ordered 178 pizzas and never picked them up
A man claiming to be part of the singer-songwriter's crew ordered 178 extra large gourmet pizzas but never picked them up. He had shown a backstage pass to staff and said the food was for an after-party following Dylan's gig at the Mullins Center last month.
The total cost of the pizzas came to $3,900 (£2,500) and workers at Antonio's pizza parlour in Amherst had worked until 5.30am the next day to complete the order.
The man in question was captured on a surveillance camera and was eventually identified as having no affiliation with Dylan.
As AmherstBulletin.com reports, the 46-year-old from East Brunswick, New Jersey has now struck a deal with Antonio's, although there has been no official announcement on how much he will have to pay them.
