PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The Kentucky man leaving giant tips at restaurants around the nation in the name of his late brother has struck in Maine.

Seth Collins, of Lexington, Ky., on Monday handed a $500 tip to waitress Emily Young at the end of her shift at the Flatbread Company in Portland.

Young tells the Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/1jHRZts) she had had a miserable day for tips and at first thought Collins wanted to complain. When he showed her the handful of $20 bills, she says she felt lucky, maybe a little in shock.

She plans to share the tip with co-workers, pay bills and buy a round of beer for her friends.

Collins is handing out the tips in honor of his brother, Aaron, who died in July 2012 at age 30.
