Timothy Welsh thought that he had a clever idea. He used a magic marker to change the three and nine of his license plate to eights. Then then ran lights and speeding — even allowing one camera to film him flipping the bird. When another man complained of receiving tickets, cops found the film and tracked down the 44-year-old Arizona man.
Police say that Welsh seemed entirely fine with the act when confronted and reportedly admitted everything. Of course, his brilliant scheme has him facing a year in jail and a $1500 fine, rather than a $175 fine (not counting the cost of magic markers).
