Santana Party Patrons Arrested

Two men have been arrested after allegedly using a bogus credit card to pay off a $28,500 (£17,800) bar tab at Juelz Santana's 27th birthday party.
The rapper turned 27 last Thursday (18Feb10) and his celebrations continued on Monday (22Feb10), when he partied with fans and friends including Lil' Kim, Ashanti and Snoop Dogg at New York nightclub M2 Ultralounge.
Two patrons, Robsson Depeine and Jeff Sylvain, are said to have ordered several bottles of expensive vodka and champagne, even sending one over to Santana.
But they aroused the suspicion of the bar manager after running up the bill by ordering two bottles of Veuve Clicquot, costing $3,500 (£2,100), and another $5,500 (£3,400) bottle.
General manager Dan Devlin tells the New York Post, "That’s when one of our managers became suspicious. The purchase was ridiculous and Sylvain introduced a second card with his ID and I knew that’s when there was a problem."
The men were arrested after allegedly handing over a fake American Express card. They're being held on $20,000 (£12,500) bail on charges of grand larceny and criminal possession of a forged instrument.
But the pair's attorney Joseph Coluccio maintains Depeine and Sylvain are innocent victims of mistaken identity: "There were several people putting down credit cards and ordering pricey bottles of champagne. There was chaos at the end of the night and the bartender realised that there had been fraudulent transactions. The club couldn't find the real person who gave them the credit card, so my clients were wrongly identified. It's a joke."
