A couple on Long Island has won a million dollar argument with Suffolk County.

Richard and Mary Morrison, of Miller Place, won $165 million in the Mega Millions lottery.

But Suffolk County grabbed a million from the jackpot.

Officials said the Morrisons owed the county for the debts of a non-profit they once owned.

A court now says the county cannot hold onto that million while the dispute works its way through the courts.
