UK Man "Spreads A Little Sunshine"
A 40-year old UK man threw £20,000 of bank notes into the air in Aberystwyth, Wales, shouting "Who wants free money?" He then ran to his BMW and drove away, leaving a scene of chaos behind him as passers-by and local workers scrambled to collect the cash. The man was arrested some 15 minutes later on suspicion on drunk driving, but no charges have been filed. Chief Inspector Kevin Davies mentioned that the possibility of a hospital order was discussed, because "let's face it, throwing large amounts of money in the air is not normal."
The man said that he simply wanted "to spread a little sunshine" and he certainly did, because the lucky people who collected the scattered banknotes are under no legal obligation to return their gifts.
