FREMONT -- A Hooter's patron, who a judge had previously banned from bars, was arrested on suspicion of violating his probation after police say he caused a ruckus at the popular eatery over the weekend.
Officers were called about 10:35 p.m. Sunday to the business in the 3300 block of Mowry Boulevard after an employee called to report a drunk, belligerent patron who refused to leave, said police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.
When officers arrived at the restaurant, they spoke with a man they identified as Gregory Foto, 42, of Livermore and informed him that the manager requested he leave the restaurant.
Officers noticed the man had slurred speech and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, Bosques said.
The patron did not know where he lived, officers said, was incoherent and became agitated because he did not think he'd done anything wrong, Bosques said.
A records check revealed he was on probation for two previous assault charges and for being drunk in public five times, so officers arrested Foto on suspicion of violating his probation.
Police said a court order also showed a judge had banned him from all bars.
