January 05, 2015 - 12:00 PM

BARRIE, Ont. - Police in Barrie, Ont., say a waitress won't be getting a nearly $99,000 tip left by a patron.

Police say they were called to a downtown bar on Sunday night because a man was having difficulty paying his bill.

Police say the man bought a sandwich and after paying the $7 cost, left the waitress a tip of $98,931.87.

Investigators say the 35-year-old Angus, Ont., man was found to be intoxicated in violation of a recognizance and was held for a bail hearing.

Unfortunately for the waitress, police say the man's credit card was rejected and thus no tip was left.
