Dingus Magee Bar Find Leads to Trouble
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good Morning. I'm Steve Inskeep, with one more page from the annals of Dingus Magee. That's the name of a bar in Statesboro, Ga. A 21-year-old customer discovered somebody's checkbook on the bar. And having found it, he decided to use the checks to pay his $129 bar tab. It was only afterward that he discovered the checks he'd just stolen belonged to a bartender there. The customer has since been arrested, and his father had to pay the bar bill.
