David Weber, 53, attempted to purchase a beer with the bartender's stolen credit card.   (Miami Dade-Corrections)

(Newser) – A guy strolls into a bar and buys a beer with a credit card. He is then swiftly arrested. The guy, a 53-year-old homeless man in Miami Beach, purchased his brew from the exact wrong bartender ... because he happened to be using the bartender's stolen credit card, reports the Miami Herald. David Weber was charged with credit card fraud and theft. Earlier in the night, Weber had broken into a car in a parking garage and snatched the coincidental card, say police. Weber claimed he found it on the ground.

I suppose that using it after you find it on the ground isn't quite as bad as using it after breaking in and stealing it from a car, but not by much.

Poor guy looks like he could use a drink; I'd probably buy him a round.
