Drunken man who tipped waiting staff $22k arrested

Police arrested a man in Nashville on Monday on charges of public intoxication after he tipped servers US$22,000 at a downtown hotel bar.

The inebriated individual tipped waiting staff around US$22,000

Joel Boyers, 39, attracted the attention of waiters after making several high value tips amounting to US$22,000, which had led to the serving staff competing to serve him, according to the Daily Mail.

Tennessee police were called after friends of Boyers, a pilot and flight instructor at a Tennessee flight school, sent text bragging about drinking while carrying a firearm. The high roller was arrested on charges of public intoxication.

It’s unclear if the man was aware, or had intended, to have tipped such a large sum to waiting staff, or the moral obligations of a restaurant in accepting such large tips from a clearly inebriated individual.

Last year a YouTuber, known for carrying out extreme acts of generosity, made headlines after he left a US$10,000 tip, in cash, at a restaurant in North Carolina after ordering just two waters.

Elsewhere, one waiter’s servitude was rewarded by a benevolent diner who left him a life-changing US$25,000 tip to fix his decaying teeth.
