A Merrimac Street man patronizing an Allentown bar was arrested early Friday after he failed to pay a nearly $300 bar tab, police said.

Edward P. Coleman, 40, who was charged with theft of services, ordered $292 in drinks from Duke’s Bohemian Grove Bar, 253 Allen St., then said he couldn’t pay for them, police said. Police also said Coleman is the subject of an outstanding state police arrest warrant in an unrelated case.
