Lawsuit filed over $1M winning Ark. lottery ticket

The Associated Press reports that worker at a Beebe gas station has sued the winner of a $1 million jackpot from an Arkansas lottery scratch ticket, claiming woman who cashed the ticket took it from her.

The Daily Citizen newspaper in Searcy reported ( ) Tuesday that Super 1 Stop manager Lisa Petriches had a collection of discarded lottery tickets and that Sharon Jones took one without her permission.

The ticket in question hadn’t been completely scratched and turned out to be a $1 million winner.

Jones’ lawyer, Winston Collier, says Jones has removed used tickets from Petriches stack before without drawing an objection.

A judge has ordered Jones to not spend the prize money until the case is resolved.
