Doctor Racks Up A $135,000 Bill At The Strip Club But Refuses To Pay Because He Was Drugged?!
The New York Post reports a prominent heart doctor racked up a $135,000 bill at a Manhattan strip club then refused to pay his tab, claiming that staffers must have drugged him into having such a good time, a new lawsuit charges.
Scores NY says in its suit that 41-year-old bachelor Dr. Zyad Kivarkis Younan “voluntarily’’ visited the West 28th Street strip club on four occasions in November for “services, food and beverages.”
“He spent a lot of money,” club rep Steven Sabbeth told The Post. “He was partaking and tipping and drinking.”
Younan — who lives in Holmdel, NJ, and specializes in clinical cardiac electrophysiology at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital — signed his American Express bills at the club.
But he later disputed the charges, claiming that he couldn’t possibly have rung up that high a bill without having been drugged. The doc said he wasn’t even at the adult playhouse on some of the days in question.
But Sabbeth said there is irrefutable evidence of Younan enjoying himself those days at the club.
“We have it on tape,” he said.
When asked about the drugging allegations, Sabbeth joked, “Within two weeks, he was here four times. So if he was drugged the first time, I guess he liked it.”
On a more serious note, he said, “We’re very law-abiding. We’re very careful.”
Sabbeth was not able to give a breakdown of Younan’s activities at the club, but he said the most popular services include $20 lap dances and room rentals for up to $1,000 an hour. Each dancer costs extra.
Unbridled behavior is not out of the ordinary, Sabbeth said.
“This happens every once in a while — people get out of control with their credit cards, and then they wake up the next morning and realize what they’ve done,” Sabbeth said. “They knew it the night before, but I guess it didn’t bother them because they were enjoying themselves.”
