Serge Vorobyov, man who made it rain at MOA, winds up in jail
On Black Friday, Apple Valley resident Serge Vorobyov made it rain cash at the Mall of America. He framed his stunt as an act of altruism, but his soon-to-be ex-wife said Serge's motives were less pure than he was letting on.
Serge dreamed big about ways to prolong his proverbial 15 minutes, but none of them came to fruition. And over the weekend, he wound up in Dakota County Jail.
Arrest records indicate Serge was arrested at 4:20 p.m. Friday. As the following Facebook post indicates, he was due to appear in divorce court the same day:
Records indicate Serge was arrested on suspicion of one count of "Contempt of Court - Disorderly - Interrupt Proceedings" and another of "Contempt of Court - Willful Disobedience to Court Mandate." That's all we know right now.
It appears Serge remains in custody this morning. His bail is $2,000 without conditions, meaning that $1,000 he literally threw away at the MOA would probably come in pretty handy right about now.
