Guy Goes To Court To Fight Cell Phone/Hash Brown Dispute

Jason Stiber from Westport, Connecticut, says he’s, quote, “going to trial for justice.”  On April 11th, around 6:00 A.M., Jason was pulled over for distracted driving.  The officer said he saw Jason talking on a phone, and gave him a $300 ticket.  Jason denies the allegation and says he wasn’t talking on the phone, he was eating a hash brown from McDonald’s.

Jason has some evidence backing it up:  His call log shows he wasn’t on the phone , and his car has Bluetooth, so he wouldn’t need to holdhis phone to make calls.

In spite of Jason’s argument, a judge still found him guilty when he tried to fight the ticket in August.

He requested a re-trial, which will happen next month.  This time, Jason hired a lawyer for $1,000 , which is about the same amount his car insurance went up because of the ticket.
