You can’t give me a speeding ticket, a Sylvania man tried to tell a Perrysburg police officer after he was caught speeding. I already work for you, the man said.
The excuse didn’t work, even after the man tried to pull out some business cards that said either DEA agent or FBI agent, according to a police report.
The odd incident took place Thursday on South Boundary and Maple streets.
A police officer noticed Adel Kamal, 53, driving 47 mph in a 25 mph-zone and passing a motorcycle in a left-hand turn lane.
When Mr. Kamal pulled over, he told the police officer he was late for a doctor’s appointment.
The next excuse got more creative. Mr. Kamal told the officer he couldn’t give him a citation because he already worked for him.
“You don’t work for us that I know of,” the police officer responded, the police report said.
The officer handed back the business cards when Mr. Kamal gave them to him.
“That’s the last time I work for free for any cops,” Mr. Kamal told the officer and then he drove away after he received a citation.
