Ind. court says man must pay back casino

The Indiana Court of Appeals says a Kentucky man who borrowed $75,000 from an Indiana casino and lost it gambling must pay the money back despite his claim that he was drunk.

The court said it wasn't deciding whether a casino was obligated to deny a loan to someone who was drunk. It said Jimmy Vance didn't prove that he didn't understand what he was doing after consuming seven whiskeys over about four hours.

The Times of Munster reports Vance had argued that he was drunk and could not be held responsible for the casino loans, called markers.

Court records show that employees at Caesars Indiana, now Horseshoe Southern Indiana, said Vance's speech and motor skills weren't impaired.
