Miami Beach police say David Weber’s first mistake was breaking into a car in a parking garage Monday night in order to quench an insatiable thirst for beer with the help of someone else’s credit card.
But, police said, his second, and by far more critical, mistake was walking into The Clevelander just before midnight and giving the card to a bartender — who noticed that he’d just been handed his own credit card.
After the initial shock wore off, the bartender had security call police, who charged Weber with credit card fraud and theft.
Weber, 53 and homeless, said he found the card on the ground, according to police.
