Rockport Police/Fire

ROCKPORT — A New Hampshire man found out that saying, “there’s no such thing as a free meal,” is true.

A Bearskin Neck restaurant called police Friday at 9:30 p.m. saying a Chester, N.H.. man was causing a scene. The man then left the restaurant without paying his bill.

“Several neighbors” called police Friday around 11:45 p.m. about a man yelling in the area of Lanes Farm Way.
