Lawyer parties with five women in Vegas suite, causes $96K of damage
The Epilogue loves American lawyers. They’re just so much splendider than we are.
Think about the last supposed scandal that befell your firm. We bet it wasn’t much: an associate gets a little oversauced at a works do, makes a drunken pass at that business development girl and ends up wrecking his Thomas Pink shirt when he drops his kebab down it in the back of a minicab.
Meanwhile, over in Vegas a high powered lawyer gets arrested for wrecking a two-story duplex at the Encore Tower Suites at Wynn Las Vegas. When the police get there, he’s the only male, surrounded by five females.
Specifically, damage has been done to the walls, floors, drapes, speakers, pillows, a vase and – get this – a book about Michelangelo. We can only assume that Pearman and his colleagues had become involved in a heated debate about the aesthetics of The Last Judgement when things got a little out of hand.
Pearman’s rhetoric is occasionally commendable, though. According to the Daily Mail:
‘I take full responsibility for what happened here. We were partying,’ he told officers through slurred speech. ‘I did all of this. I am responsible for all of these people. Let my people go.’
Slightly less noble language ensued, however, when Pearman decided not to take responsibility after all but to challenge the repair costs in court. Pearman said that he will ‘depose Steve Wynn’ and ‘make this place napalm’. AB
