Emma Caresimo opened the door of her home in South Wales and found her car had been booted by a bailiff from Wigan, England, who said she had to pay a fine for dropping a cigarette butt on the street in Wigan and not showing up for trial. She says she paid the fine to keep car from being towed. Then she called officials in Wigan, which she has never been to, to find out what happened. She said a woman named Emma Smith, from Liverpool, had littered. Caresimo's maiden name was Smith, so that seemed to be more than enough to seize her car.
Sandy Martinez says that fine, along with another $63,500 for driveway cracks and a downed fence, violates Florida's constitution.
