Man Arrested for Attempt to Spend $1M Bill
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
A guy walks into a Pittsburg supermarket and pulls out a $1 million bill. That was the first surprise, that he had a $1 million bill. Second surprise is that he asked for change. You can imagine the cashier saying, you want it all in bills or are you going to need some quarters. But in fact, the cashier refused. The man flew into a rage. He was arrested by police who seemed to think a $100 bill is, in reality, the largest currency in circulation.
