Denver (Colorado) Police Department
The stranger the charge, the stranger the picture -- you never see a completely normal-looking person in these things.

In this case, these two Colorado men -- Robert Jeffery Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson, 25 -- are accused of having their own version of "Weekend at Bernies," the film where two men drag a corpse around.

Police say Young and Rubinson drove around with the body of their dead friend, Jeffrey Jarret, used his ATM card to get $400 and spent the cash at bars and strip clubs.

The two are accused of abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation.
