BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) — A former Delaware County middle school principal involved in a fatal boat crash last year has been arrested in Bartlesville for refusing to pay a $94.97 restaurant tab.

Bartlesville police told the the Tulsa World on Friday that 40-year-old Roger Shane Carroll of Eucha was arrested Tuesday night. He faces preliminary complaints of defrauding a restaurant and resisting and obstructing a police officer.

An affidavit says the manager of Buffalo Wild Wings told police Carroll and three other men came into the restaurant and ordered food. It says Carroll refused to pay the bill and told the manager if he called police he would tell officers the restaurant was selling beer to minors.

Carroll was acquitted in March of manslaughter and reckless operation of a vessel in the fatal boat crash.
