A beer vendor at Hard Rock Stadium was arrested after he charged a fan $724 for two beers during a Miami Dolphins game. Police say 33-year-old Nathaniel Collier took the fan's credit card and used a personal card reader instead of the device the stadium provides to vendors, to overcharge the unwitting fan.
The fan, who was not identified, received an alert about the insane charge, and immediately notified the authorities. The alert included the vendor's name, making it easy to track him down.
Collier worked at the stadium for about a year and was employed by a subcontractor to walk around the stands selling beer. He was immediately terminated following his arrest.
Collier was taken into custody and is facing charges of grand theft and using a skimming device.
The fan was issued a refund for the overpriced beer.
