Man Makes it Rain for Panhandler, Gets Busted for Littering Cash

YouTube

When Ohio motorist John Davis saw a disabled panhandler near a highway exit ramp last Monday, it reminded him of his paralyzed brother. The tug at the heartstrings was enough to get Davis to fork over a few bucks to the panhandler, but when one of the dollar bills fell from a bad hand-off, Davis got pulled over.

A police officer ticketed him not for giving money to a panhandler on a ramp, which is illegal in Cleveland, but for littering. “Threw paper out window,” is what Davis’ ticket says.

The motorist’s act of generosity could cost him: if he doesn’t win a challenge in court, his few bucks to the disabled man could mean $500 in fines and court costs.
