28-year-old Carley Williams of Nashau, New Hampshire was pulled over by a state trooper for driving 82 M.P.H. on a local highway. In attempts to get out of a ticket, Williams pleaded with the trooper, telling him that she was rushing to be with her dying father at a Manchester hospital. Feeling sympathetic, the trooper took down her information and let her on her way.
A Lie Revealed
After doing some further investigation, the trooper learned that not only was Williams’ car’s registration suspended, her father had died in 2008. And he had the obituary to prove it.
Williams was later arrested by the trooper at her home and is facing charges for speeding and driving after suspension of registration.
