Cops Reportedly Pitch in for Taxi Fare for Man Who Walked 29 Miles to Court

On a freezing day in Georgia


James had fallen on hard times.

He totaled his car and he was living in a shelter in Atlanta. His wallet was empty. There was no money for a bus, certainly none for a cab. And that posed a significant problem.

James was supposed to report to a court in Lilburn, Ga. to resolve a traffic citation – some 29 miles away.
