CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- An out-of-towner is behind bars in Mecklenburg County after getting belligerent and refusing to pay her tab at a bar in the Charlotte Douglas Airport, police say.

Kimberly Kruger, 45, of Louisville, Kentucky, is facing charges of disorderly conduct and fraud, defrauding an innkeeper, in connection with the incident Saturday night.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police say Kruger refused to pay her bill for two glasses of wine at the Fox Sports Bar in the E Concourse at the airport. Several attempts were made to request payment, but according to the police report, Kruger became angry and responded that she wasn't paying the "#&%@!*^ bill."

A CMPD officer put Kruger in handcuffs and placed her under arrest.

According to jail records, Kruger remains in the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office.

Her bond is set at $1,000.
