Anight of mer­ri­ment with liquor and danc­ing girls at a bar ended sourly for a driver who was un­able to pay for the al­co­hol af­ter the women re­port­edly took his cash.

The ac­cused Les­ley Knight of a Red Hills Road ad­dress pleaded guilty with ex­pla­na­tion in the Cor­po­rate Area Res­i­dent Mag­is­trate’s Court to ob­tain­ing credit by fraud on Thurs­day.

“I was at the bar hav­ing some rum with two girls and we did a dance. One deh and the front and one deh a the back,” Knight ex­plained which caused amuse­ment in court.

He told Se­nior Res­i­dent Mag­is­trate Judith Pusey that on the day, he had $ 4,100 in his pock­ets be­fore he started danc­ing with the girls but the money could not be found af­ter the dance, nor could the girls.

He re­alised the money miss­ing when it was time for him to pay for the al­co­hol he or­dered. He told the court he de­cided to leave the bar to go else­where to get some money to pay his debt and left his driver’s li­cence with the bar­tender to as­sure her he would re­turn.

How­ever, the po­lice were still called and the man charged.

He was also found in pos­ses­sion of an ounce of ganja by the law­men. Knight was or­dered to pay $ 100 or serve ten days for the ganja.

He made resti­tu­tion to the com­plainant so a no or­der was made for the ob­tain­ing credit by fraud charge.
