sharp reprimands or lack thereof

A man who claimed to have diplomatic immunity and millions in the bank vowed that the White House would be calling Stamford police with a reprimand Tuesday after he was arrested for trying to skip out on a near $500 Richmond Hill strip joint bill, police said. The man, Eddy Morales, 39, of Weathersfield, was held on $230,000 bond after police discovered that he had nine warrants for his arrest because he failed to appear for numerous court dates in several jurisdictions in the state, police said. Morales was additionally charged with sixth-degree larceny after he was unable to raise any money from family or friends to pay his $467 bill at Beamers Cafe strip club Monday night. The manager told police Morales showed up with several other men at 8 p.m. and said he was entertaining some business associates and wanted to start a tab. After the champagne and lap dances flowed for hours, Morales went to pay his bill and was turned down by the credit card company, police said. At that point, Morales told the manager that he and his family were worth millions and he was welcome to call police in the matter…Morales was arrested and while in his cell told officers that his family was worth a half billion dollars and the White House would be calling with a sharp reprimand, police said. The White House call never came. [Stamford Advocate, earlier]
