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.
