KATHIE J'S STUPID NEWS - JACKED UP!
MAN HAS HEART ATTACK BEHIND THE WHEEL, CAUSES MINOR ACCIDENT, THEN GETS 2 TRAFFIC TICKETS
Back in April, 20-year-old Dan Langley of Wall, New Jersey was driving through Spring Lake Heights, New Jersey and had a HEART ATTACK. He blacked out and caused a minor accident.
About a week later, the police mailed him THREE TICKETS . . . for tailgating, reckless driving, and unsafe operation of a motor vehicle.
So Dan got a note from his doctor before his court appearance, to contest the tickets.
It said, quote, "Please forgive Mr. Langley's tickets due to his unfortunate experience of having a heart attack seconds prior to having his car accident."
But that somehow WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH. The prosecutors agreed to throw out two of the tickets and downgrade reckless driving to obstructing the passage of other vehicles . . . but Dan still had to plead guilty and pay a $133 fine.
There is ONE twist to this, though. After Dan had his heart attack and caused the accident, he stumbled out of his car and threw up. A police officer on site realized something was wrong and immediately got the paramedics to the scene.
So that cop's quick thinking probably SAVED Dan's life. The doctors aren't sure what caused Dan to have a heart attack at age 20.
