Jerry Stanage, pictured, and two pals ran up a tab of $23.19 at the Ale House in Ocala, FL and then ran out on the bill, say police.
Unfortunately for Stanage, 28, their waitress overheard which watering hole they were hitting up next and went there to confront the three who allegedly decided to eat it and beat it.
Two of the men took off. Stanage, however, agreed to go back to the restaurant with the waitress and she called police.
Officers say Stanage appeared to be intoxicated and told them he didn’t have the dough to pay the bill. But they reportedly found $6 and plenty of credit cards in his wallet.
For some presumably dumb reason, Stanage reportedly refused to pay up, so they hauled him off to jail.
Stanage is charged with defrauding an innkeeper.
Stanage's friends are… well they're probably laughing a lot right about now.
