he shoulda taken it in and left it requesting a receipt for the pennies. Shoudna dropped them all over the place. Always ticks off the Mormans.

Cute story. However, there is no coin in the U.S. monetary system called a "penny". We're on a decimal coinage system, in which the smallest discrete coin is a "cent". And the AP knows this ...

That's great! Money is money! 100 pennies, 4 quarters, a dollar bill, it all equals a dollar! I'd do the same thing when paying the city back! Great mind thinking!

They called the coppers on him, but as defense attorney I am betting he can ductile the charges and then conduct himself better in the future.
