Stranger Than Fiction! Man Arrested For Handing Out Cash

Why don't I ever meet drunks like this?

A 59-year-old British man was arrested at a Spanish airport yesterday for handing out about 52,000 Euros ($72,285) in cash and traveler's checks to passersby after having had too much to drink on a flight in.

Turns out he'd just received an inheritance, and "began handing out cash while laughing," a spokesperson for Spain's Interior Ministry said.

The man who initially caught everyone's attention because he "looked like a tramp" and "had a disagreeable smell" was taken into custody, told to put his money away, and to fly home. The British Foreign Office was informed of Happy Drunk's bizarre behavior but didn't need to get involved to have him return home.

I guess he was arrested for disorderly conduct ? ... although I don't thinking passing out money is really disturbing anyone's peace ;) !
