NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - Brett Sanders of Frisco, Texas, used pennies to pay for a speeding ticket because he wanted "to make a big spectacle of it." He used 22,000 pennies to pay for a $212 fine.
Sanders created a video of the incident that has gone viral. "I'm not a big fan of extortion. I was convicted by a jury for driving 39 in a 30 and was subject to $212 at the barrel of a gun," wrote Sanders.
In the video, he is seen calling a bank to ask if they would have 22,000 pennies available.
It also shows Sanders bringing the coins in buckets and pouring them onto a counter at a municipal court house.
According to local media, the court clerks brought the pennies to Coinstar locations.
Sanders is reportedly owed $7.81 for overpaying.
