FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A father wants investigators to pursue fraud and larceny charges against a Panhandle strip club after his son ran up a $53,000 bill in a single night. He was celebrating his college graduation.
Fifty-two-year-old Joe Salter, of Mary Esther, told investigators Club 10 employees took advantage of his 24-year-old son, Tommy. The younger Salter was at the club August 18th to celebrate his graduation from Georgia Tech.
According to a report from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, Salter told employees he could only spend $600. But Club 10 owner Tim Beal says Salter bought at least 19 bottles of champagne — priced from $150 to $2,000.
