Penny offense: Man fined for paying fee in pennies


news.yahoo.com

No lucky pennies here: Police have charged Jason West, an aggrieved medical patient in Vernal, Utah, with disorderly conduct. His alleged crime? Attempting to pay a disputed medical bill of $25 entirely in pennies.

The story, reported in the Salt Lake City Deseret News, describes the "penny offense" this way: West, 38, did not believe he owed the medical clinic $25 but came in to pay the fee in person. He first asked the clinic staff if the facility accepted cash payments, and then dumped 2,500 pennies onto the counter and demanded that they be counted.

How can they charge this man with a crime? I don't know the whole story, but it doesn't say he was making scene. I really don't know what to say, as this is pretty unbelievable. Who knew you could be arrested for paying in pennies... I can understand the frustration of the clinic, but to call the cops, and for the cops to actually make an arrest?!

This isn't America.
