Two deadbeats were busted for slashing another customer while trying to skip out on a bill at a Sheepshead Bay diner, cops said yesterday.
Steven Madden, 31, and Damien Bass, 27, were dining at El Greco at Emmons Avenue and East 19th Street at 5:10 a.m. Monday when the manager noticed they were drinking beer from their personal stash, sources said.
The manager told the patrons to pay their food bill and leave, but Bass grabbed the check, threw it on the ground and spat on it, cops said.
When a customer tried to intervene, Bass allegedly slashed him on the face.
Police soon arrested the suspects on various charges, said a spokesman for DA Charles Hynes.
