LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested a Nashville man they say had a penchant for skipping out on his bills.
According to an arrest report, 64-year-old Franklin C. Thomas walked into Cunningham's restaurant on 4th Street with two other people on Wednesday and told them he was paying their bill, which totaled roughly $40.
But he walked out without paying, police say, telling employees of the restaurant that he had to get cash from the ATM. He didn't return.
Police say 20 minutes later, Thomas visited the Bluegrass Brewing Company on 4th Street and also skipped out on a $13 bill there.
The previous day, police say Thomas was cited for not paying his bills at the Seelbach and the Brown Hotel.
Police say they caught up with him while he was in a room at Hotel Louisville. He allegedly refused to let them in, so they had to cut the chain off the hotel room door, causing $50 in damage.
Police say Thomas, "obviously doesn't understand that you need money to patronize businesses downtown" and had plans to return to his home state of Tennessee the next day, so they decided to arrest him, rather than simply give him a court date.
He was charged with criminal mischief and theft of services.
