BROOKSVILLE, Fla. - A Spring Hill woman is back behind bars on charges of failure to pay $45 for dinner and drinks just hours after her release from jail.
According to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office report, Jennifer McNeill, 42, had dinner Wednesday night at the Carrabba's on Cortez Boulevard in Brooksville. She consumed $45 worth of food and wine.
When it came time to pay her bill, the restaurant manager told detectives she handed over a credit card that subsequently was declined.
McNeill proceeded to hand over several other credit cards, according to the report, all of which were also declined.
The manager gave McNeill one hour to find someone to come to Carrabba's to pay her bill. When no one responded, McNeill grew belligerent. Then she started texting people.
At 11:23 p.m., a deputy took her into custody.
McNeill was given no bond, however, because she'd just been released from jail a few hours earlier on a trespassing charge.
