LA CROSSE -- A Wisconsin man has been arrested after accidentally leaving a baggie of methamphetamine in a restaurant's tip jar last week, according to police.

Officers say an employee at Famous Dave's called them on Friday when they said someone had left what appeared to be a bag of meth in the tip jar.

The 42-year-old man was gone by the time police arrived, but they tracked him down a short distance away, where he told officers he may have accidentally dropped the meth in the jar.

The man has been arrested for possession of methamphetamine but has not yet been charged.
