Man Claims He Rang Up $135K Strip Club Bill Because He Was Drugged — 4 Different Nights

It’s one thing to have a wild and crazy night where you wake up and think, “Hmm, maybe some things happened last night that I don’t remember,” but to ring up over $100,000 at the same strip club and then claim you were drugged — four nights out of 10? That might be a tougher tale to tell convincingly.

Here’s how it went down: A New York City cardiologist shared a corporate credit card with his father, who one day noticed about $135,000 in charges at a strip club, spread over four nights in a 10-day period, reports the New York Daily News.

That’s when Cardiologist Jr. said he had never stepped inside the strip club, but if he did, well then, he must have been drugged, court papers say. Yes, drugged four different times.

“He was coherent until he saw the bill,” joked the club’s manager.

The club is now suing the repeat customer for stiffing the joint, saying he “voluntarily came to plaintiff’s place of business and requested that plaintiff provide him with food, beverages and services.”

But when Cardiologist Jr. saw the bills, he “contested the charges alleging that he was drugged by plaintiff’s employees and thus did not authorize the charges and/or he was not at plaintiff’s place of business on the aforesaid dates.”

The club says it has him on video on all four dates in question, so it must just be the mysterious, villainous repeat drugger at work.

“We get a lot of very wealthy people here. You can run up a bill,” the club’s owner said, adding that it’s very rare for someone to not pay, however.
