In the social media age we live in, anyone looking to dine and dash should think twice.
Owner of The Brewer's Cabinet in Reno, Nevada decided to put up a picture of Saul Zelaznog on their Facebook page after he walked out on a $100 tab. The post advised friends of Zelaznog to “call RENO POLICE DEPT” as well as to “remind him that his tab at The Brewer's Cabinet is still waiting to be paid.”
Within a couple of days, the post had hundreds of shares on the social network and Reno police arrested the bill skipper on an “unspecified probation violation.”
Brewer’s was contacted by several other Reno establishments with stories of Zelaznog pulling the same scam on them.
Zelaznog claims that he is “not trying to burn bridges around town” and that he “was going to be back to take care of (his) tab”. He was in the process of asking relatives to wire him the money so he could square up with the bar.
Updating fans on Facebook after Zalaznog’s arrest, Brewer’s posted, “We hope that all of his outstanding debts are paid in time, but more importantly, that he makes wiser decisions in the future.”
