It’s not a good idea to flip off a cop after getting a speeding ticket — even though a federal appeals court says it’s perfectly legal.
The judges in the Sixth Circuit in Michigan ruled unanimously that a Detroit-area cop was in the wrong when he gave a woman a more serious level of ticket after she gave him the finger during a traffic stop.
The incident began when Debra Cruise-Gulyas was pulled over in the suburban Detroit town of Taylor back in 2017.
The officer gave her ticket. But rather then just letting it go, Cruise-Gulyas gave Officer Matthew Minard the bird.
Apparently angered by this, Minard then pulled her over a second time and changed the ticket to a more serious speeding offense.
