A man in Connecticut says he received a false fine of $ 300 for driving distracted because the police thought he was holding a cell phone, when in reality he only ate a brown McDonald's hash.
Jason Stiber is taking the matter to court after losing his initial trial.
Despite telephone records showing that he had not made a call at the time surrounding the traffic stop in April, the court ruled against him.
Now, according to Times Union, Stiber says: "I'm going to go to court for justice."
He also insists that he has Bluetooth and that he would have no reason to hold his phone to his ear.
His new trial is scheduled for December 7, according to the Associated Press.
The Times Union also reported that the cost of $ 1,000 to hire a lawyer coincides with the increase in Stiber insurance due to the ticket.
Westport Lieutenant Jillian Cabana said on the way out: "They detained him for talking on his cell phone and they gave him a ticket, I'm sure his claim is different."
