High rollers drink and dash on 86,000-euro bill (ANSA) - Cagliari, August 22 - Young men allegedly ran up an 86,000-euro drinks bill and left without paying at a Sardinian nightclub owned by Ex-Renault Formula One boss Fabio Briatore, local reports said.

According to Briatore, who reported the incident to police Sunday, three young Russian men and their respective girlfriends opened over 90 bottles of Cristal champagne as they partied until dawn inside the private suite at his discotheque on the Costa Smeralda, an area frequented by the jet-set in northern Sardinia.

When the bill arrived, the accused thieves referred the waiter to a chartered yacht for payment, according to reports.

However, the bill has yet to be paid.
