In what is thought to be the first case of its kind a London man has been charged with providing misleading information and false names to staff at Coffee chain Starbucks. It is believed that when asked for his name in order to identify his order the man deliberately gave a series of made-up names for staff to call out when his coffee was ready. 24 year old barista Zoey Philips told us ' at first I thought it was odd that his name was Mr M Mouse but as a middle-class American with a complete lack of cynicism I just assumed it was an unfortunate name and I felt sorry for him when the other customers laughed. However the next day he gave his name as Ben Dover and next time when I called out 'Caramel Macchiato for Hugh Jass' I realised that they weren't laughing at him they were laughing at me and I burst into tears'.
It is understood that the man then tried to flee the scene when other customers turned on him but that he was arrested by a Detective Sergeant Oswald before he could make his escape. DS Oswald confirmed ' I saw it all happen while I was waiting for my Ethiopian Roast Grande Latte, when I saw him fleeing the scene I took him down, because of all the commotion I had to wait another 10 minutes for my coffee so we've done him for wasting Police time as well'.
Police have yet to confirm the identity of the man but he has been named locally as 38 year old merchant banker Mike Hunt.
