    I can't believe the woman did this! This is one of those--you have to read the story articles. :-)

    Snips

    Police say a woman who had to pay $139.50 for a speeding ticket must have decided to obtain some home decor from the Upshur County Courthouse in return.

    Sarah Zabolotny, 29, of Elkins paid the ticket on Feb. 27 after being cited for driving 74 mph in a 65 mph zone.

    Afterward, according to authorities, she left with her boyfriend via an elevator and walked around a long, burgundy hallway rug leading to the doorway of the Upshur County Courthouse. Police say she bent over, folded the 8-foot-long rug twice and walked out of the courthouse with it. (More at link)
