Texas Man Surprises Clerks By Paying Speeding Fine in all Pennies
"I didn't hurt anybody. I didn't endanger anybody's life."
That's what Texas man Brett Sanders said to explain why he paid a $220-plus speeding ticket he recently received while driving near his Frisco home, in all pennies. According to newser.com, Sanders was fined for driving 9 miles over the limit, and because cops made such a big deal about it, he decided to make a big deal about paying for it.
His YouTube video “How to Pay for a Speeding Ticket” shows Sanders unrolling the about 22,000 pennies and dumping them into two buckets labeled "Extortion Money.” He proceeded to unload his coinage onto a clerk's counter. It took the clerks three hours to count and roll the pennies.
