He definitely wanted to keep the change: Cops have charged a North Carolina man after he attempted to pay a $476 Walmart tab ... with a $1 million bill. Seems that 53-year-old Michael Fuller bought a vacuum, microwave, among other items, and forked over the bill when it came time to pay. Store employees called the police after Fuller insisted that the bill was legit, reports the Winston-Salem Journal, though the largest bill in circulation is a meager $100 note.

"There is no such thing," reads the warrant for Fuller's arrest. Fuller was in the pokey on $17,500 bond, and presumably won't be paying cash. He faces charges of attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument. (Read more strange stuff stories.)
