David Mattina who owns Jazzeppi said he's looking forward to put the matter behind them for it was a complete 'misunderstanding' when the TV star left without paying.

Actor Gary Collins has been arrested over allegations he left a restaurant without paying. The veteran TV star was detained by cops in Biloxi, Mississippi on Tuesday, January 4 night on suspicion of defrauding an innkeeper.

Collins allegedly ordered a meal at Jazzeppi's Restaurant but left before settling his $59.35 bill. Restaurant workers are said to have followed Collins into the parking lot in an attempt to ask him about the unpaid tab, according to TMZ.com. The website reports cops later tracked down Collins and he was arrested and held on $5,000 bail.

Meanwhile, David Mattina, owner of the restaurant said, "The owners of Jazzeppi's are treating the matter as a misunderstanding and I will not be pressing charges. Mr. Collins has been in Jazzeppi's on several occasions, I understand, and I have been looking forward to meeting him and his wife. They will be welcomed and I hope we can put the matter behind us."

Saying that police would not have been called if they were on the spot, Mattina added, "I'm going to see if I can get the charges dropped." Collins himself did not make a comment about the incident, simply saying it was "unbelievable."
