Jimmy Buffett got into a situation in Palm Beach, Fla., recently that had a lot of similarities to Paris Hilton's now-famous T-Mobile Sidekick incident. Trouble began when Buffett lost his cell phone, and it ended with the involvement of the U.S. Secret Service.
The Mayor of Margaritaville was seen dancing into the early morning hours of May 29 at Palm Beach's Cuban nightclub Brisa Atlantica. At 4 a.m., during cleanup, busboy Jason Martin, 22, ran across a $500 Ericsson cell phone.
"We were sitting around smoking weed and scrolling down the list on Jimmy's phone, going, ‘Wow!'" Martin told the Page Two gossip column of the Palm Beach Post. He said he didn't call anyone but his friends might have crank-called former President Bill Clinton.
Other bigwig contacts on the phone included Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Clint Black, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Cam'ron, George Clooney, Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford and Bill Gates.
Martin said a Buffett associate called the cell phone on May 30.
"He said I was a thief and a liar," Martin told the paper. "Then I called [Buffett's wife's] number and she was nasty to me. So I told them I wouldn't give it back."
Despite a $200 reward offer, the busboy still refused to turn over the phone. After Buffett called the restaurant, the owner fired Martin and police were called. Because the digitsof ex-presidents were on the phone, the Secret Service was brought in as well.
Martin finally turned over the phone but the memory card was missing. According to a police report, the busboy told a witness he planned to sell the SIM card to the National Enquirer. However, Buffett told the Post it's pretty much OK as things stand.
"There wasn't much on [the chip]," the artist said. "Although, whoever had the phone may have called a couple of my contacts."
He didn't elaborate but said the phone's keypad was locked by password.
"Not true," the busboy responded. "I wonder if Jimmy really knows how these things work."

You Got Nuts

You got nuts, man
I'll give you that much
Some kinda big balls you got
You talk to me like I'm some kinda chump
Owes you a favor?
It ain't even like that

Oh, you got some cajones, cabron
This I can see
You must shoot a huge load the way you talk
You talk like you think you are EL Presidente
I've got news for you, you are not EL Presidente

I'm gonna go get a cup of coffee
You better not be here when I get back

What's Your Deal?

What is your deal? Exactly.
I can't figure it out
And I'm pretty smart
What is your deal, dude. Exactly.

You and me go back a ways
A long, long ways if you ask me
But you didn't ask me
And so here we are
What is your deal, dude? Exactly.

I've got five dollars
That's it
Five fucking dollars to my name
But I will give you my five dollars
If you just tell me what your deal is
