When Las Vegas cabbie Gerardo Gamboa looked in the brown paper bag left behind by a passenger who had been in his cab, he didn't find what he thought were Christmas chocolates.
He found $300,000 in $100 bills!
While a lot of people might have been unable to resist pocketing that much dough, Gerardo made it to the top of Santa's Nice List by turning in every cent! He says:
"My dignity is not for sale, and that's the way I am. That's the way our parents taught us when I was a kid."
So who was the lucky rider who got his fortune back?
"Lucky" is actually a dead-on description. Gerardo's cab company Yellow Check Star described the mystery man as a "famous 28-year-old poker player" but wouldn't say which one!
So was Gerardo rewarded for his honesty? Find out …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

The Lovelace has been super active lately as he's been making sure to keep his body in tip top shape!
However, this time he traded in his volleyball for a pair of boxing gloves as he laced up and hit the ring in El Lay for an extensive workout!
We didn't realize Seth Cohen was such a fighter!!
Adam looked like an absolute natural in the gym as he was spotted working the punching bag and sparring with his personal trainer, and he even did his best Robert De Niro impression! However, he might have mixed up Raging Bull with Taxi Driver!
Oh well! At least he looks good in those boxing gloves! LOLz!

Somebody can't handle their liquor!
Olympic gymnast Paul Hamm is free on bail after being arrested last Saturday for assaulting a taxi driver while intoxicated in Columbus, Ohio.

Check out the video above to see footage of the drunk gymnast having trouble staying upright in the backseat of a police cruiser.
