Humberto Taveras says he's no criminal, just an unhappy customer - and a 
prosecutor agrees.
The Queens man who was busted when he balked at leaving a "mandatory" tip 
at an upstate Italian restaurant was cleared of all charges yesterday.


Prosecutors tossed the charges after determining that restaurants don't 
have the legal right to require diners to pay an 18% tip for a large party
