    Diner with empty pockets carted off to jail over $45 bill

    Freedom never tasted so good.
    A central Florida woman newly sprung from the clink was back behind bars within hours of her release for allegedly racking up a $45 restaurant bill without the funds to pay for it.
    Police said in a report that 42-year-old Jennifer McNeill, of Spring Hill, wined and dined at Carrabba's restaurant Wednesday then tried to pay her bill with a credit card that was declined, WFTS-TV in Tampa reported.
    McNeill handed over several other cards there were also declined before the restaurant’s manager gave her an hour to find someone else to come up with the money, WFTS reported, citing a police report.
    The full-bellied diner reportedly became belligerent after being unable to find someone who could cough up the dough and was taken into custody.
    She was denied bond as a result of having returned to jail so soon after her release on a trespassing charge, according to WFTS.

    This story bothers me. Stuck in jail on trespassing charges, and having none of many credit cards accepted at a restaurant. I smell a nasty separation/divorce somewhere in here and I don't think anybody belongs trapped in jail over it.

    Interesting thought there Kid. IF that's the case I could feel sorry for her.
