(INDIANAPOLIS) - An Indiana family said they were shocked when their credit card statement said a pair of beers they bought at a convention cost $1,497.50 each.

The family, who asked not to be named, said the beers at the NFL Experience concession stand at the Indiana Convention Center January 28th were supposed to cost a total $14, but they later found their credit card had instead been charged $2,995.

The convention center's concession manager, Centerplate, issued a statement saying officials are working to correct the overcharge. The company said such problems are rare.
