KSTP reports the man who tossed $1,000 into the Mall of America rotunda Friday did it to get his girlfriend back.
Serge Vorobyov threw 1,000 dollar bills over a third floor railing as a choir sang "Let it Snow."
The Star Tribune reports that Bloomington police gave Vorobyoy a ticket for disorderly conduct. Police called it nothing more than a publicity stunt.
Bloomington police said he had stamped the money with his YouTube address. He hoped the crowd would go on the internet and "convince his estranged girlfriend to get back together with him."
Vorobyov said in a YouTube video that he meant to "spread holiday cheer" and not cause trouble.
He also posted a video that shows how it happened.
A Mall of American spokesperson told WCCO that his antics could have caused a major disturbance and someone could have been hurt.
