Coin sweeper: Busted for boasting

Roberto Cercelletta is shown sweeping coins with a broom in Rome's Trevi Fountain in this July 31, 2002 photo, despite being banned by the city last week from doing so. Cercelletta, 50, was arrested Tuesday Aug. 6, 2002 and taken into custody for investigation of theft and resisting arrest by police who spotted him collecting coins from the fountain. Italian news reports said when Cercelletta was arrested he had a bag of coins weighing nearly 50 pounds. Cercelletta has boasted about making a living by taking out hundreds of dollars worth of coins daily.(AP Photo/Corrado Giambalvo)
