    Police in Bloomington, Minn. cited a 29-year-old man for disorderly conduct after tossing 1,000 dollar bills over an upper floor railing at the Mall of America.

    Serge Vorobyov of Apple Valley, Minn. admitted to throwing the money as a choir performed "Let it Snow" on Friday. He had stamped the bills with his YouTube address to direct people to it. He was cited and released at the scene.

    Vorobyov said Sunday he's going through a divorce and lost his business, and he hoped the positivity of throwing the money would come back to him. He says he threw his last $1,000.

    Vorobyov says he invited his estranged wife to the stunt to win her back, but she didn't show up.

    Mall of America spokeswoman Sarah Schmidt said Vorobyov disrupted the performance and could've caused a serious situation.
