Nathaniel Collier

The Herald reported Miami-Dade police arrested 33-year-old Nathaniel Collier at Sunday's Miami Dolphins game after he allegedly grabbed the customer's card and swiped it using a personal card reader instead of the device the stadium provides to vendors. 

(Meredith) -- Buying beer at sporting events can be a pretty expensive endeavor, but how about being charged the criminal price of $724?

A beer vendor at a Miami Dolphins was arrested for allegedly charging a customer $724 for two beers, according to a police report obtained by The Miami Herald.

The Herald reported Miami-Dade police arrested 33-year-old Nathaniel Collier at Sunday's Miami Dolphins game after he allegedly grabbed the customer's card and swiped it using a personal card reader instead of the device the stadium provides to vendors. 

After the transaction was processed, the customer got an alert from his bank displaying the name of the vendor and informing him of the three-digit charge to his card.

Collier was working for a Kentucky-based contractor which employs walking vendors at sporting events and concerts called Rocket Man, The Herald reported, and had been working as a walking vendor for more than a year at the stadium.

After he was arrested, the newspaper reported he had been fired by Rocket Man and the customer received a full refund.

The Herald reported Collier faces charges of grand theft and using a skimming device. 

He is being held on a $10,000 bond.
