Driving While Eating a Hashbrown
A man was pulled over by police accused of driving while holding his cell phone, which carried a $300 fine. He insisted the office mistook the McDonald’s hash brown he was eating for a cell phone and refused to pay the fine, taking the case to trial. A judge found him not guilty, ruling the state failed to meet its burden of proof. The judge made no ruling on whether or not he was truly eating a hash brown as he claimed.
