Driver Pulled Over for Hanging an Air Freshener in His Car

Recommended Posts

It all started when Michigan resident Richard Houghton was driving through Wisconsin, where he was pulled over by a police officer. The reason? He apparently had an air freshener hanging from his rear view mirror, and a GPS unit on his dash, which according to the police officer, were obstructing his view of the road and were thus illegal under state law. A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded a small amount of marijuana. Houghton was arrested and charged with 2 years of probation, and his car was seized under civil forfeiture laws.

The guy lost his car for basically nothing. What a shame. Civil forfeiture laws are becoming more heinous by the day and they need to be reigned in but that's not going to happen. It's a cash cow.
