Customer Urinates on Floor, Refuses to Pay $35 Bar Tab, Police Say
The Largo Police Department was called Thursday afternoon when a Dunedin man refused to pay his bill at the Fat Cat Tavern in Clearwater.
Three Largo Police Department officers found Mark Anthony Brienza, 46, sitting at a table at Fat Cat Tavern on U.S. 19 in Clearwater on Thursday afternoon.
The problem: Brienza allegedly would not pay his $35 tab.
Instead, when asked to pay up, the Dunedin man reportedly urinated on the bar's floor, said Largo Police Lt. Mike Loux.
According to officers, Brienza got louder, refused to walk with officers, spit, and ended up kicking an officer in the groin, Loux said.
Brienza was arrested on charges of petit theft, disorderly conduct, battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and an outstanding warrant from Hillsborough County for possession of cocaine. He was held at the Pinellas County Jail on total bond of $10,400.
