77-year-old toll booth worker allegedly fired after paying driver's toll

A 77-year-old Florida veteran claims he was fired from his job as a tollbooth operator after he paid a driver's $5.00 toll out of his own pocket.

The Daily Mail reports Vladislav 'Sam' Samsonov of Boca Grande worked at the Gasparilla Island Bridge Authority for nearly 30 years and was asked to cut his hours dramatically after the “incident”. 

A Facebook page supporting Sam was created and is calling for his job to be given back.
