'Friends' run up debt on corpse's ATM card

They hung out at a bar, a restaurant and a strip club

Two men accused of driving around with a dead friend, using his ATM card and visiting a strip club are charged with abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation.

It’s unclear how Jeffrey Jarrett died, but the men are not charged in his death.

The Denver Post reports that in a less amusing real-life version of the film “Weekend at Bernie’s,” an affidavit accuses Robert Jeffrey Young and Mark Rubinson of leaving Jarrett’s body in the car while they drank at a  bar on his tab Aug. 27.

Investigators allege the men stopped at a restaurant, returned Jarrett’s body to his home, used Jarrett’s ATM card and withdrew $400 at a strip club before reporting Jarrett’s death.
