Brewers Cabinet Bashes Saul Zelaznog On Facebook For Dining And Ditching, Investigation Ensues

A pub in Reno, Nevada called Brewers Cabinet posted on Facebook that a patron dined-and-ditched recently.  Saul Zelaznog was arrested as a result.  Zelaznog was described as a “serial thief.”

Saul Zelaznog is accused of eating dinner at the pub with friends last Tuesday and walking out on his portion of the bill.

“All his friends paid and left and he was the last one,” stated Brewer’s Cabinet manager Chris Kahl in an interview with the Reno Gazette Journal.  “The server needed to collect his money. He said he forgot his wallet.”

Before Zelaznog ran away, one of the restaurant’s waiters got a picture of him.  The manager posted the photo with a warning on their Facebook Page.

“ATTN RENO: If you know, or see, this dude, please call RENO POLICE DEPT at 334-2121 immediately, and then remind him that his tab at The Brewer’s Cabinet is still waiting to be paid,” states the Facebook post.  “And, while you’re at it, you could tell him that visiting restaurants/bars with your friends, running up a huge bill, roughing up servers and then bailing is pretty uncool… pathetic, really. Get a life, man.”

The post went viral in Reno and was shared almost 700 times.  It was confirmed that Zelaznog dined-and-ditched three other bars in Reno.  Zelaznog claimed that he is not guilty though.

“They’re acting like I ran out of there [Brewer’s Cabinet], I was going to be back to take care of my tab,” stated Zelaznog told the Journal.

Brewer’s Cabinet filed a report against Zelaznog.  This issue is now being investigated.

    And for those who overestimate the response of police to petty crime and underestimate the power of public humiliation in a small town, give a long sad bow to Saul Zelaznog…

    Which is another way of saying I should only steal when I can guarantee there is no chance of getting caught…
