Edina man at Woodbury bar: 'I'm rich, you're poor'

Posted: Updated:
WOODBURY, Minn. (KMSP) -

After having his credit card declined at Wild Bill's Sports Saloon in Woodbury, Minn., an Edina, Minn. man, allegedly told the manager "I'm rich, you're poor…I can do what I want" after skipping out on his bar tab.

Edina Patch reports the man was causing a disturbance at Will Bill's at about 2 a.m. June 29. According to the police report, he was trying to buy liquor by the bottle, but was told he could only buy shots or mixed drinks.

Officers learned the man left his declined credit card at the bar. A manager later found him down the street at Sunsets of Woodbury and asked him to come back and settle his tab.

The man allegedly swore at Wild Bill's staff members and tried to leave after his card was declined a second time. He allegedly jumped over a patio deck to run away, but was caught and held down by bar staff as he yelled, "I'm rich, you're poor…I can do what I want."

Wild Bill's did not pursue charges.
