Admit it: you've probably asked for a free cup of water from a restaurant and then fill that cup with soda (clear ones like Sprite or Seven-Up, of course, you sneaky devil) when nobody's looking.
Well, here's the cautionary tale of what could happen to you for thievin' soda:
After filling a courtesy cup with soda Thursday at the McDonald's soda fountain and then leaving the restaurant, Mark Abaire, 52, of the 500 block of 14th Street North, was arrested by Collier deputies and now faces a felony theft charge, a sheriff's report shows.
A manager told sheriff's deputies that Abaire entered the store and asked for a glass of water around 10 p.m. Although the employee told him the cup was for water, Abaire filled it with soda at a fountain machine and sat outside the restaurant, according to an arrest report.
