Serge Vorobyov, the local guy who got arrested last winter when he tossed money in the Mall of America rotunda in an attempt to woo his estranged wife back (it didn’t work), tossed more dough from the Sky Ride at the State Fair last weekend.
“It was good fun,” he tells City Page’s Aaron Rupar. “It was a good way to end the summer and that was kinda my thing. It’s a little surprise when you get something fun and pleasant.”
He’s hoping to restart a car hauling business while saving money for a future giveaway, he says.
