Got Change For A Million?

million dollar billChange for a million? That's what a man was seeking Saturday when he handed a $1 million bill to a cashier at a Giant Eagle supermarket on Pittsburgh's North Side in the U.S.

But when the employee refused and a manager confiscated the bogus bill, Samuel Porter flew into a rage, police said. Porter slammed an electronic funds-transfer machine into the counter and reached for a scanner gun, police said.

Police arrested Porter, 66, who was not carrying identification and refused to give his name to authorities. He is being held in the Allegheny County Jail.

Since 1969, the $100 bill is the largest note in circulation.
