Heinrich Johnson, 21, and Justus Joubert, 34, spent the night in jail after their Monday arrest on charges of defrauding an innkeeper when they were unable to pay their $260.34 bill for food and drinks at the Bahia Cabana Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Wednesday.
Broward Judge John "Jay" Hurley ordered the men, who are both from South Africa, to pay their tab with a "fat tip" and return to his courtroom Friday with their receipt.
The judge warned the men, who are due to leave the country on a work-related trip next week, that they might have trouble re-entering the country if they do not take care of the issue and have prosecution pending against them when they return.
