Brickbat: I Know You


Steve Tom

When actor Steve Tom got a $490 ticket generated by a red light camera for an illegal turn in Culver City, California, he was certain he wasn't guilty, especially when he saw the ticket wasn't issued to his his vehicle. But the officer who signed off on the ticket insisted it was him because he'd met him before and just knew it was him. Tom tracked down the owner of the vehicle and found they did look quite a bit alike. After local media picked up the story, the police department dropped the ticket.
