Dear Philly Bars: Watch Out for Aspen James

Police say he was stopped on the 1000 block of North Bodine Street inside a stolen vehicle. He was charged with receiving stolen property and unauthorized use of a vehicle and released on $1,500 bail.

    Dear Philly Bars: Watch Out for Aspen James
    Bartenders at three Philly watering holes say he ran up tabs this week and then didn't pay. It's been a while since we had a good tale of a person allegedly dining and dashing (or drinking and dashing) from Philly bars and restaurants. But lo and behold, we give you Aspen James.
