Drunk Packer Fan Tries To Not Pay Cabbie $475 & Doesn’t Work
athan Tyler Meleski, 24, convinced a Yellow Cab driver to take him all the way to Richfield — 111 miles — on a promise to pay on arrival, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
The cabbie drove from Lambeau to the Richfield Truck Stop, located west of Interstate 41 at Holy Hill Road, the office said.
The passenger told him to wait while he used an ATM inside so he could cover the $475.60 fare. Instead, the Sheriff’s Office says, Meleski slipped out the back of the business and left the 59-year-old cabbie without paying.
The cabbie called police, who noticed that the man had left a telltale trail of footprints in the snow.

When people talk about drunken Packer fans, they should point to this guy. Packers fans like to drink, and then there are few who go a little too far with it. Case in point with this guy who tried to make a great escape from not paying for a nearly 500 dollar drive. He must have been pretty tuned up not to realize his footprints would track him right to a townie bar. Can you imagine seeing that guy in your bar? He must have looked like a complete mess.
Not to be an asshole, but this is somewhat on the cabbie too, right? This cab driver decided it would be a good idea to leave Green Bay and take this drunken idiot back to Slinger, Wisconsin. Not once did he or she think it would be a good idea to maybe stop at a Kwik Trip in Appleton and get some money out? A part of me wants to put this on the cab driver. The lack of self-awareness is amazing, but I shouldn’t be surprsied given how poorly the cab system is run in Green Bay.
Wisconsin, keep doing you, you beautiful drunk bastards.
