A NY woman was arrested late last month after leaving a $5,000 tip at a Clearwater restaurant.

Michael Crane, Wolfe's boyfriend, said the couple had gotten into an argument because he refused to buy her a plane ticket to return to NY, according to the affidavit.

The restaurant reportedly paid out the $5000 tip to the employee.

Following the argument about the plane ticket, Crane placed a hold on his credit card.

When Crane questioned Wolfe about the charge she reportedly denied making it and her boyfriend reported it as fraudulent.

Wolfe was upset with her boyfriend, Michael Crane, for refusing to buy her a ticket for a return flight to NY, according to the affidavit.
