Man Ticketed After Heart Attack

The New Jersey city of Spring Lake Heights takes their driving laws pretty seriously.  If you have a heart attack while driving and cause a minor traffic accident, the police will write you tickets: 

A little more than a week after the April 1 heart attack, which led to a minor traffic accident, Langley, a 20-year-old Wall, N.J., resident, received the tickets in the mail. When he went to the Spring Lake Heights Municipal Court to fight them, he and his family figured a doctor's note would help convince the local prosecutor or judge to dismiss the summonses.

Two tickets were dismissed, but a third was only downgraded.  Langley paid a fine after getting out of the hospital.
