Yeah, telling the officer that he had the cash was a HUGE mistake.
Never, ever tell anyone that you are carrying a large amount of cash.
I have read before about Tenn. police taking cash from people in much smaller amounts. Like whatever they had in their wallets.
This is just another crime that has been spawned by our ridiculous drug laws.

Statistically speaking, doesn't over 90% of US currency in circulation have traces of coc aine or other drugs on it? This smells like a rat.

Duly noted... I'm never going to Tennessee.
I'd actually like a ride off this insane asylum if there's any UFO's departing from here soon.

MONTEREY, Tenn. -- "If somebody told me this happened to them, I absolutely would not believe this could happen in America."
That was the reaction of a New Jersey man who found out just how risky it can be to carry cash through Tennessee.
For more than a year, NewsChannel 5 Investigates has been shining a light on a practice that some call "policing for profit."
