     Former boxing champ Vinny Paz was arrested after he wouldn't pay his 23–dollar tab at a bar in Warwick Then, to make matters worse he started throwing around bar stools.

     He's won 50 matches, has five titles under his belt, and it's no secret Vinny Paz likes to have fun. "I go hard all the time, it's go big or go home, " says Paz 

     And on Wednesday night, Paz did not want to go home. It was closing time at the Grid Iron Ale House in Warwick, but the only bar patron left was Paz who refused to pay his 23 dollar tab. "When I've had four or five drinks I don't even know what a bill is, " says Paz.

   Paz admits he doesn't remember much, but according to police, but he went berserk when bartenders asked him to pay up. Sources tell ABC 6 his outburst was even caught on surveillance video. Paz yelling and tossing around bar stools. "I may of hit a chair because I didn't want to hurt anyone, " says Paz.

    He was ultimately arrested and charged with two misdemeanors. "It was because of alcohol that's all, " adds Paz. Something he knows is becoming an issue. "I need to slow down. Obviously when I do things I do them strong and I do them hard, " says Paz.

    It's Paz's second arrest related to drinking in less than a year. This past summer he was in court, accused of hitting a woman inside a bar on Federal Hill. The case was dropped. "It gets blown out of proportion a little bit because it's me. The problem is I like to do things to the limit, In the ring that was a good thing out of the ring not so much, " adds Paz.

    He'll be back in court later this month.
