A man who tried to get even by paying a speeding ticket with $120 in pennies got upstaged by a North Dakota judge who made him stay until they were counted.
Robert John Zukowski brought a garbage can full of about 12,000 pennies to Clay County District Court to pay his fine for speeding, the Fargo Forum reported. Court Administrator Jan Crossette lugged the bucket of change to a bank, which used a machine to count the money and gave her $120 in bills.
Zukowski got a few pennies back in overpayment.
Judge John Pearson told the newspaper he thought Zukowski's anger was misdirected.
"If the person is mad at the cop, why take it out on court administration?" Pearson asked. "They're punishing the wrong people."
