Drunken Foreigner Shocks Spain with His Generosity

A British man who arrived at a Spanish airport
after having too much to drink has been taken into custody - not
for bad behavior but for being too generous.

Turns out the tourist had recently received an inheritance, and
he had started to give away 52,000 ($72,285) he was carrying in
cash and travelers checks.

Spain's Interior Ministry says people at Son Sant Joan Airport
in Palma de Mallorca first alerted police because the disheveled
man "looked like a tramp" and "had a disagreeable smell."

Police realized he was giving away thousands of euros, without
realizing what he was doing.

The ministry says the man - identified as James B.N., from
Manchester, England - was taken in custody Wednesday and soon
persuaded to put his wallet away and fly home.
