Serge Vorobyov — who goes by the YouTube handle “Serge the Car Hauler” — threw $1,000 in dollar bills from the fourth floor of the Mall of America rotunda as a choir performed “Let it Snow” on the ground floor below.
Serge said the reason he surprised everyone and tossed out the cascade of cash is because he’s had a rough year and just wanted to help other people on Black Friday.
Unfortunately, Bloomington police did not share his vision of yuletide cheer. They arrested him and charged him with disorderly conduct.
A Mall of America spokesperson said his antics could have caused a major disturbance and someone could have been hurt.
Go watch a Christmas movie. Whatever your religion or lack thereof, it's a holiday with diverse origins that transcends labels and beliefs so there's one for you out there. Christmas belongs to everyone. How about "Scrooged" since this place is full of irascible, cantankerous internet jokers. "Put a little love in your heart" folks.

Uh.. sounds ti me like HE was trying to start a stampede. Throwing money on black friday when people are already trampling each other. I don't believe in arresting people for stupid things, but I won't defend him. He wasn't helping anyone.. people stepping on each other to get 1 or 2 dollars? Why not just hand 10 dollars to random people. Hes lucky no one was injured (if they weren't) or killed.
He is an idiot trying to create a problem and I'm fine with his arrest. He didn't do it to give back.. 1000 bucks says he did it for his youtube channel. "People scrambling for 1 dollar bills on blaxk friday.edit on 1-12-2013 by GogoVicMorrow because: (no reason given)
I think it's long overdue..clear out the crap and start again.
