A code enforcement officer in Brynmawr, Wales, fined Valerie George £75 for littering after a strand of cotton fell from one of her gloves to the sidewalk. George says she didn't even see the strand fall and would have picked it up if asked. When contacted by media, local officials said they would drop the fine but George did break the law.
