In case you missed it, former New York Yankees pitcher Hideki Irabu was arrested yesterday in Osaka, Japan for attacking a bar manager and otherwise wreaking havoc after his credit card was declined. Irabu apparently started the night with twenty “jugs” of beer and finished it by shoving the manager against the wall, pulling his hair, and smashing at least nine liquor bottles.
But wait, it gets better… When all was said and done, he whipped out a different credit card and settled his bill. I think there’s a lesson buried in here somewhere. Like if your credit card is ever declined, try your backup card before attacking the manager and trashing the establishment.
