Police: Two men went partying with dead friend in backseat

DENVER -- In a case reminiscent of the 1989 film “Weekend at Bernie’s,” prosecutors say two men went for a night on the town with their friend dead in the backseat of their car.

Robert Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson, 25, are charged with abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation in connection with the case, which occurred on the night of Aug. 27.

“It’s an unusual case. It’s a very sad case,” said Denver District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough. “The charges allege that these two young men put their buddy into the car...and basically went out on the town with his credit cards.”

According to the arresting documents, Young found his friend, 43-year-old Jeffery Jarrett, unresponsive at his home in the 1800 block of S. Forest St.

Instead of calling 911, detectives say the pair placed Jarrett in the backseat of Rubinson’s SUV and went for a ride.

Their first stop was at Teddy T’s, a bar and grill at E. Evans Ave. and S. Monaco Pkwy, where investigators say the suspects used Jarrett’s credit card to pay for drinks.

Later in the evening, the two went to eat at Sam’s No. 3, with Jarrett still in the backseat.

According to police, Young and Rubinson eventually took Jarrett back home and put him in bed and then went back out for more fun on the town.

Using Jarrett’s credit card, police say they bought food and drinks at a Viva Burrito and filled up Rubinson’s car with gas.

Their next stop was Shotgun Willie’s, a popular strip club at on Colorado Blvd. in Glendale, where police say they withdrew approximately $400 dollars from an ATM and stayed until closing time.

Saw the mug shots. Reminded me of an old friend of mine who unknowingly wrote a song for these guys many years ago. The title was: “Cigarettes, Beer And A Real Low IQ”.

He would have wanted it that way. Okay maybe not. it's sort of funny in a sick twisted way. I don't want to think it's funny but I get this mental picture in my head and . . . I don't know. I wouldn't mind having a wake at my funeral. A little Irish whiskey and everyone just sit around and tell . . . No wait! I need to take this matter more serious. I'll get back with you after some more bourbon thought on the matter.

Oh, and my band played at Teddy’s T’s recently. Strange little vibe to that place.

People are shooting one another, invading homes, car jacking and they get off scott free.

Some good buddies take their dead friend out for a night on the town and it’s a major offense.

I hope when my number is up I go out for a night out he town. Actually, I’m ready for one now.

Maybe Jarrett was smiling up above when his friends were taking him for one last party but to take him home then go to the strip club is wrong.

"Prop me up beside the jukebox if I die
Lord I wanna to go to heaven but I don't wanna go tonight
Fill my boots up with sand, put a stiff drink in my hand
Prop me up beside the jukebox if I die
Just let my headstone be a neon sign
Just let it burn in memory of all my good times”

Joe Diffie

Sometimes life imitates art.

Maybe they thought Jarret might be having a conversation with St. Peter and the strip club could be bad timing? ;-)

I officially declare that my friends can do this with my corpse. And they can run up my credit card all night long.

As long as they didn't kill me. That's a disqualifier. Although I can't really enforce it, and they'll know it.

Let the guys go.

They gave their buddy one last night of fun.

Why is this a big deal to anyone?

Hell, if it was my brother I’d buy the guys drinks after the funeral and thank them.
