A Minnesota man wanting to spread some holiday cheer made it rain -- money that is.

Serge Vorobyov stood on the fourth floor of the Mall of America during a holiday concert on Friday and began tossing money to the people down below. Altogether, he threw down $1,000 in dollar bills.

Vorobyov said he had a rough year and wanted to do something nice for people on Black Friday.

But mall security wasn't excited about the giveaway. They arrested him for disorderly conduct.

A mall spokesman said the man's stunt could have caused a major disturbance and gotten somebody hurt.
