Ah .. but the story gets better ...
If the guy had returned the finger when he found it doctors could have reattached it to the poor kids hand. The guy was so bold as to call the place up and tell them he found it ... but refused to turn it over because he wanted to hang on the the "evidence" so he could sue the company. Now, instead of a get rich quick card, the guy is facing possible criminal prosecution and a civil lawsuit from the kid for refusing to return it.
