A man who was pulled over for speeding in Texas was issued a ticket of $1 and $5 for each hour he was stopped, according to a new court document.
The incident occurred last year in Kaufman County, Texas.
The man’s vehicle was stopped by an officer who found the license plate of a Toyota Camry on the road, and the vehicle was also equipped with a camera.
When the officer asked for his license and registration, the man said he didn’t have one and was told to go to the police station.
The officer asked if he had any drugs in his car, and he said he did, according the document.
After the officer left, the vehicle had its license plate removed and a ticket was issued for $600 for each day the officer stopped the vehicle.
According to the document, the officer said that he did not see any drugs on the driver, but added that he could see there was a blood odor in the vehicle, which was confirmed to be from the driver’s breath.
The ticket was later dismissed, and a search warrant was executed and seized the vehicle from the man.
The case is still under investigation, according a news release from Kaufman County District Attorney’s Office.
