Dine and dasher shamed

Brewers Cabinet/Facebook

A serial dine-and-dasher in Nevada is caught with the help of a little Facebook shaming.

Brewer's Cabinet in Reno posted Saul Zelaznog's photo on its Facebook page earlier this week after he skipped out on a $100 tab, according to The Huffington Post.

"If you know, or see, this dude, please call RENO POLICE DEPT ... immediately, and then remind him that his tab at The Brewer's Cabinet is still waiting to be paid," read the post, which was shared nearly 750 times and drew hundreds of likes and comments.

Zelaznog is also accused of dining and dashing at other downtown Reno bars and restaurants, police told the Reno Gazette-Journal.

He was arrested on a probation violation on Thursday.

Zelaznog defended himself to Gazette-Journal, chalking the incidents up to a series of misunderstandings.

"They’re acting like I ran out of there. I was going to be back to take care of my tab," he said, adding he left a "nice watch" as collateral for his bill at one establishment.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
