TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

 

TODAY'S MOST...Hopeless romantic: A man tried to pay for a Valentine's Day meal with a trillion-dollar bill. 

Workers at an Applebee's in Sumpter, South Carolina called police when Michael Williams gave them the bill. Initially, Williams tried to pay with his debit card, but that was declined. Then the 53-year old whipped out the bill with twelve zeroes. 

Williams was ultimately arrested, but not because of his trillion-dollar mistake. The State newspaper says was wanted for an unrelated charge of contempt of court.
