AMHERST, Mass.—A man wearing a Bob Dylan backstage pass who ordered nearly $4,000 worth of pizzas from an Amherst pizza parlor but never picked them up has agreed to hand over the dough.

A lawyer for the New Jersey man says his client is a "decent enough" guy with no criminal record who felt bad about the prank.

Attorney Sean Cleary did not reveal his client's name and did not say how much he'll repay.

Workers at Antonio's stayed until 5:30 a.m. on Nov. 20 making 178 large pizzas after the man ordered the pies shortly after a Dylan concert at the nearby University of Massachusetts.

Employees assumed he was ordering for Dylan's crew.

Police identified the prankster through surveillance video.

Some pizzas were given away, but most were thrown out.
