Charles City, Iowa – A shopping trip gone wrong for a Charles City man turned into a $100,000 prize from the Iowa Lottery.
60-year-old Brian Staudt forgot to purchase a lottery ticket on a recent grocery trip. After realizing he didn’t purchase a ticket, he stopped for a grocery item he forgot, but he didn’t realize he’d forgotten the lottery ticket, again.
The third stop was the charm where Staudt picked up the winnings at Casey’s in Charles City.
Staudt said he plans to visit the baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown N.Y.
