ST. MATTHEWS, Ky. (TND) — A young man with a big check was turned down at a Porsche dealership and he ended up under arrest.

St. Matthews police in Kentucky said they were called about Connor James Litka “attempting to purchase a vehicle,” last Wednesday, Feb. 21.

The salespeople actually refused to sell him anything, maybe because Litka showed up with a check for $78 million that probably would’ve covered his purchase with no financing necessary.

Then, police said, “He walked around the dealership, up the steps, and back into the parts department, looking for keys.”

Litka “was asked to leave the dealership” and police said he responded by saying “he was not going to leave until he got his vehicle.”

According to the manager, Litka was “causing employees to become worried that something bad was going to happen because of his behavior.”

Finally, officers asked him “to leave several times and he again refused.”

Litka, 21, was charged with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.

Apparently, a Porsche wasn’t his first choice when it came to cars.

Police said he visited a Land Rover dealership with a $12 million check just the day before.

Litka was released from the lap of luxury known as “jail” on his own recognizance after 10 hours behind bars. He’s due back in court on April 22.
