Okay folks, here are some wise words for you. If you don’t have the money to pay a bill, even if it is just at a small restaurant inside a bowling alley, don’t go out to eat.
Apparently, two Florida football players have never heard those words. According to College Football Talk, Adam Lane and Caleb Brantley were both cited with second-degree misdemeanor offenses when the two skipped out on a food bill at a bowling alley back on July 4.
The two were part of a group that ran a tab of up to $90. Brantley, a defensive tackle, was responsible for nearly half the total price at $42.34 and Lane, a running back who split time with Matt Jones in 2014, was responsible for $16.93 of the bill. The incident took place at Splitz Bowling Alley, which also has a bar & grill in it, in Gainesville.
Neither player was arrested in the incident and they are not expected to face any major punishment by the university of coach Jim McElwain. Minimal missed playing time would probably suffice the crime, but don’t expect either of them to be suspended.
So, kids. Just make sure to pay your bill, no matter how much you may rack up. It’s simple, if you don’t have enough money to pay for your food (and tip your server) just don’t go out to eat.
Skipping out on a bill will be a lot more trouble than its worth in the end.
The Gators open the season on September 5 as they host New Mexico State.
