SC Man Facing Federal Charges Over $.89 Drink Refill

By Sujata Jain

CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A North Charleston man was hit with a federal fine for refilling his drink without paying. The on-site construction worker says he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston came at a price, and Wednesday, during his lunch hour, he was slapped with federal charges.

The ticket was issued by the Federal Police Force at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston after Christopher Lewis refilled his soda without paying the $0.89. A hospital spokesperson called it a "theft of government property."

"Every time I look at the ticket, it's unbelievable to me, says Lewis, who works construction. I can't fathom the fact that I made a $0.89 mistake that cost me $525."

Lewis is now out of a job. According to a hospital spokesperson, signs are posted in the cafeteria informing patrons that refills aren't free. Lewis says he never noticed the signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions. He says after he went back for seconds on Wednesday, a man who identified himself as the chief of police, stopped him.

17444 His refill should have been free at a VA hospital where he was a construction worker. I'm sure the overpaid cop steals as many refills.
