Man attempts to pay $32 bar tap with gum wrappers

LAWTON, Okla. (AP) - A 28-year-old man who attempted to pay for his
bar tab with gum wrappers was arrested after a scuffle with a police
officer on Tuesday night, authorities said. A bartender told police the man
was playing pool with an open bottle of beer and spilled some of it on the
table. She said he first tried to pay his $32 tab with a credit card, which
was declined.

When police arrived and ordered the man to pay his tab, they reported
that he began counting out gum wrappers as if they were cash.
The man was detained on a complaint of disorderly conduct and assault
on a police officer.
