Run Dennis Run: The Worm Pulls A Drink And Dash Fail
There was a guy we knew in Washington DC who was infamous for going to bars with expired credit cards, running up tabs and breaking out on them. It got to the point where no one wanted to be around him because you never knew when he was going to get thrown out, punched for saying something incredibly offensive or just act like a jackass. We knew it was going to happen. It was just a matter of when and how. He's now a schoolteacher in a different state or so we heard. The less we know, the better. No one's thinking about the children.
Dennis Rodman pulled the old drink and dash but it didn't work out so well for him. He was arrested by German police after bailing on a $5100 hotel bill after playing an exhibition game. Game organizers agreed to pick up the bill for his hotel stay but didn't agree to pay for the party he threw after the game which resulted in the outstanding bill.
The hotel manager called the police who tracked Rodman down in his limo and arrested him. He was detained until he paid the bill and an additional $2500 to prevent further legal proceedings. You mean I can break the law in Germany and just pay the cops off? Who knew the Germans were so lenient towards lawbreakers? I always thought The Netherlands was the place to commit crime. We had a plan to lure Maroon 5 and Nickelback to Amsterdam then bury them in a dike. Better amend the plan and have a go at it in Dusseldorf. Don't worry. We have plenty of Deutsche Marks for all the coppers and prosecutors. Straight cash, homey.
