Police: Man skipped out on TGI Fridays bill, urinated on floor, drove away drunk
Police have arrested a man they say caused a scene at a Newark restaurant before driving away while drunk.
The incident happened just before 8 p.m. Dec. 22 at the TGI Fridays on South College Avenue, according to Lt. Fred Nelson, a spokesman for the Newark Police Department.
Employees called police and reported that the man racked up a $96.05 bar tab and then urinated on the floor of the women’s bathroom before leaving without paying.
After employees provided a description of the man’s car, officers pulled him over on Elkton Road and discovered he was intoxicated, Nelson said. He was arrested without incident.
The suspect, Seth A. Baugher, 37, of Rising Sun, Md., was charged with DUI, theft of services, disorderly conduct and public intoxication. He was released on $1,500 unsecured bond.
