A Japanese teenager ran up a $54,000 bar tab with his buddies using his dad's credit card, and now a judge says he doesn't have to pay it back because the bar didn't verify his identity.
The 16-year old had quite a night on the town with his friends, racking up charges with $3,700 bottles of champagne and several different kinds of booze. They also hit up a popular Kyoto club where they dropped money spending time with beautiful women, though the teen reportedly never paid for sex.
His father is responsible for $783.00 of the debt, but the rest is to be paid by the clubs and the credit card company.
