With friends like this, who needs enemies. It was reported today that two Denver men face corpse abuse and identity theft charges for allegedly bar hopping with their dead friend in the car.
Robert Jeffrey Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson, 25, allegedly went to visit their friend Jeffrey Jarrett. When they realized he had died in his home, they allegedly still loaded his corpse into their car and then went to Teddy T’s bar and grill and Sam’s No. 3. They continued on a party excursion, leaving friend Jarrett in Rubinson’s Lincoln Navigator.
The worst part about the story is that they not only allegedly drove around with their dead friend for hours, they used his bank card to pay for their drinks and night on the town. After getting wasted on their friends tab, they returned his body to his home and went out for a meal. To add insult to injury they then went and withdrew $400 more from his ATM card and headed to a strip club.
Finally after a wild night out, they informed police of his death and were quickly arrested. They are now wishing they would have skipped the bar and wild night out because they are in hot water. It has been said, “be careful who you befriend” and this is a classic story of why you should.
This insane event is being compared to the 1989 movie “Weekend at Bernies” where two men lug around their employer’s body, making people think he is alive. But no-one is laughing this time either.
Have people lost their minds?
