Unless they had an obvious posted policy about paying fines with metallic change,I don't see were they can say squat about what he pays with. Pennies are legal tender.That is a fact.

I agree with you ,but why?
In order to support ancient marketing systems and tax revenue collection.

Abolish the penny and round up or down!
$99.99 becomes $100 or $99.95.
Let's abolish DST while we are at it too, so common sense might be able to breathe a little.
And another thing, why is fuel still priced in tenths of cent?
$2.39 and 9/10ths cents per gallon...let's round to $2.40 and be happy!

OK, I feel so much better now.

As to Mr. Anthony Sevy...good try!

Yep,

The State assclowns did the same in New Jersey when a guy tried to pay a several hundred dollar ticket with pennies. The clerks refused legal tender saying it wasn't money, state finally said coinage is legal tender but then limited the weight of the coinage you could bring in. OSHA standards for office workers and all.

Government gets you coming and going.

This guy's fine was $10...isn't that equal to 20ea. rolls of pennies?
Doesn't seem to onerous, to me.

Your honor, let me enter into evidence, exhibit A.

meh' been going on for years

Back in the early 80s I was ticketed for APC...actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence. Chevy Blazer in the GFs backyard. I had the tranny and transfer box out of it when Orifficer Dick Eater pulled up and kicked my creeper.

Had a case of beer, well by then close to a twelver in the cooler on ice but keys were in the ignition. Back then it wasn't much of a crime in MN but I fought it and lost, think the judge gave me a 180 odd dollar fine for the infraction.

Went to the bank, got it all in Dimes
broke the rolls up, poured them in stinky sweat socks and brought them in the Courthouse at roughly 20 minutes to closing.
Oh they tried to refuse
I demanded they sign a statement they refused payment in legal tender. Called the city cop shop
lardass piggie who ticketed me shows up, threatens disorderly
For what ?
You want a lawsuit fatty ?
Took two cops and the clerk of courts nearly two hours to count it out, I had mixed in around $5 extra in pennies and nickles

Talk about pissed people, I walked across the street getting a take out buger and fries from the diner savoring each bite on the bench in front of the window while their dinners with family went cold.

County cops laughed their heads off, even made an article in the local newsprint. Cop involved was a serious dirtball. Guy sorta left me alone after all that.

Thorack is spot on, this used to happen often enough that they limited weight in some communities as they couldn't bar legal tender under Federal Law
trick then was to only bring in so many $$$ in change at a time.

Another dirty trick we used to do up here was to mix 2/3rd American with 1/4 Canadian. That really made them go bat shit.

This case though we don't know what the Man said at the counter
maybe he was a dick and merited a DC
obstruction ?
not very likely

You can get tagged for either charge for about anything really

First thing I was told when I had desk duty at the local PD-you can take coins for cash bond-as long as they are rolled with violator's name printed on each roll. Loose coins-no joy.

melty, you can go to your corner with V and share a child

Did you even bother to open that sicko's link ?

He insinuates because I went to a bank and picked up coin rolls back in the 80s I am the child rapist in his link.

Well the pair of you can fully engage in your circle suck, just let the captured kid go Okay.

Approach just what line ?
First your douche bag buddy drug crap straight out of the basement up here in complete violation of rules and now with your open support is running around like a chicken with his head cut off splattering this forum with his own particular form of Blood Libel.

Great form MB, great form indeed

Yeah, that makes sence
like I said quite a few jurisdictions changed policy over the years.

Thing is my guess is if it was pushed up through the Courts such policies would be ruled unconstitutional on their very face GSP

Government really can not refuse their own monetary units to pay a debt due to the Government.
Pretty basic established law.
