A Guy Tries to Stiff a Cab Driver After a $475 Ride But Cops Follow His Footprints in the Snow
24 year old Nathan Meleski went to a Green Bay Packers vs. Houston Texans game on Sunday, and after the game, he took a cab 111 miles home.
When the yellow cab got to his destination, Nathan’s fare was $475 plus tip. That’s when he told the driver that he needed to go into a truck stop and use their ATM. But as soon as he open the cab door, Nathan made a run for it. He took off like he was running in the Olympics! That’s when the cab driver called the cops to report him. When an officer got there he noticed that Nathan had left a trail of footprints in the snow so they followed them. Not too far away they found Nathan in a local bar drinking his worries away. That’s where he was arrested and is now facing a maximum of 9 months in jail and a $10,000 fine. See his mugshot here!
