A Sausalito man was arrested on allegations he punched a restaurant manager in the face over a disputed $64 dinner tab.

Adam Culbreth, 37, was booked into Marin County Jail on suspicion of battery, defrauding an innkeeper and public intoxication. He was released on bail pending further review by the district attorney's office.

The alleged incident occurred at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at Salito's restaurant in Sausalito. Police received a report that a "highly toxicated" man was arguing with the staff over his dinner bill and punched the manager in the jaw, said Sausalito police Lt. Kurtis Skoog.

Police contacted Culbreth in the restaurant parking lot while he was trying to leave without paying the bill, Skoog said.

The restaurant manager declined medical treatment at the scene.

Culbreth could not be reached for comment Sunday.
