He ran out of room after $368 million, so he wrote the last 3 zeros going down the side of the check. LOL!
I guess he thought $368 million wasn't enough for a good underwater restaurant.

I love this line from the story:

Tellers at the Jacksonville bank were immediately suspicious.

Uh, what tipped you off, the large amount or that the guy looked like he lived under a bridge ?

Yep, we Floridians get our share of idiots down here for sure.

The fact he could pony up the bail money is the most bizarre aspect of all.

...he pretty much looks exactly like I expected. Lmao

"a homeless man named Tito sold him the blank check several months ago for $100 and told Waters the check would clear for any amount of money that Waters wanted to write it for."

The man: "Tito said the check was good for any amount I wanted to write it for. So blame Tito, not me. I’m as innocent as a schoolgirl.”

...omg. No hay palabras...
