Man leaves bar without paying tab and is arrested for warrants

A Middletown man, who allegedly left a restaurant without paying his $62 bar tab, was found to have two outstanding warrants through the Warren County and Montgomery County sheriff’s offices, according to Middletown police.

Patrick Dorn, 33, allegedly sat at Buffalo Wild Wings, 3429 Towne Blvd., for about four hours on Saturday, according to a police report. He went outside several times, and when asked if he wanted to pay his tab, Dorn told the bartender he’d be right back.

Then Dorn left the restaurant, got into a vehicle and the bartender went into the parking lot. She tried to wave the vehicle down, but the driver drove off. She wrote down the license plate number and called police.

Police went to a residence in the 500 block of South Marshall Road where Dorn was located. He told police he had “no excuse” for not paying his bar bill that included food and alcohol. When police issued him a summons for petty theft, they discovered he had two warrants.

Dorn was charged with petty theft and he was transported to the Warren County Sheriff’s Office where he was re-cited for his warrant, according to the report. He had a misdemeanor probation violation for an OVI, according to records.

He will appear Nov. 20 in Warren County Court for two charges, his probation violation and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, according to court records.
