A Rhode Island man got his presidents mixed up when police say he tried to pass some fake $100 bills at a Target store.
The bills had a picture of President Abraham Lincoln on the front. Real $100 bills bear a picture of Benjamin Franklin, while Lincoln's portrait graces the $5 bill, The Sun Chronicle reported.
Dana Leland, 29, pleading not guilty Wednesday in Attleboro District Court to charges of uttering a counterfeit note and possession of a counterfeit note.
He used the fake money three days in a row at the store to buy items worth less than $25, police told the newspaper.
Leland's lawyer told The Associated Press he's struggled with drug and alcohol problems and untreated mental health issues.
