$206 Ticket Paid With Urine-Soaked Coins
Man Didn't Break Postal Laws With Package

UPDATED: 7:41 am PDT March 26, 2009


PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Washington man tried to pay a more than $200 traffic ticket by sending a plastic bag filled with coins and urine to a county billing office, deputies said.

"That's something I can't wrap my mind around," said Sgt. Phil Anderchuk, of the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office. "The thought process of acting consciously -- consummating the act of urinating in a box full of coins that someone is going to receive."

The man didn't break any postal laws by mailing the combination of urine and change to the Multnomah County court, reported television station KPTV in Portland. Postal officials said it is legal to mail urine or other bodily fluids as long as they are packaged properly in a way that doesn't leak or smell. County employees said the package was wrapped tightly until it reached the courthouse mailroom and didn't smell until it was opened.

Because of a policy of only accepting up to $20 in change, court workers returned his money -- postage due.

"It would be better if the gentlemen had done something that defused the situation and maybe mitigated it, rather than adding fuel to the fire," said Jason Posner, who was visiting the courthouse Wednesday.

The county doesn't intend to pursue the matter, as long as the man pays the $271 in charges that now include late fees.

When Jessica was about 4 or 5 years old we got stopped by the state patrol. She started SCREAMING when the trooper walked up to our window. She just kept crying and getting louder and louder saying "don't take my daddy to jail, don't take my daddy to jail". The trooper felt so bad he let us off without a ticket.:D

Ewww. That guy is a jerk....I mean, it wasn't their fault he got caught speeding.

Lisa...that is too funny! My mom got out of a ticket once because my brother and I were in the car and I think the guy felt bad! We were a lot younger and cuter then.

Too funny!

I got stopped with my 6-year-old stepdaughter in the car, we were driving to PA to see my folks. The Trooper was very nice, and just gave me a warning. Jennifer was sitting there in the passenger seat, eyes as big as saucers, as she listened to him lecture me about speeding and the law, etc.

After he got back in his car and we started to drive away, Jennifer gently touched my arm and said, very seriously, "Well, I hope you learned a lesson from this." I **** near drove off the road, I was laughing so hard!
