Police Officers Give Speeding Drivers…Lottery Tickets?
Here's a ticket drivers would love to get from police.
Police in Melbourne, Florida handed out lottery tickets to motorists they pulled over on Christmas Day.
Cops had given away more than 30 scratch-off tickets by the time 1 p.m. rolled around.
Sergeant Jamie Rocque said it's the department's way of getting in on the holiday spirit:
When we pull the motorists over, we’re also giving them the scratch-off tickets that the officers bought with their own personal funds. It’s something good to do in light of the holidays. We’re getting a lot of surprised looks…people don’t know what to say."
It's unclear if any of the tickets issued netted drivers any cash.
