I was gassing up and went in the store to get a pack of gum. The nozzle must have stuck or something because when I came out there was a big puddle of gas all over and running out of my tank filler. I know their not suppose to do that because their suppose to stop automaticly. Then there was a cop that came up and saw it and gave me a ticket that he said was for littering. How can it be littering if it wasn't my fault?
It's not littering, not the way you described it. It's not littering for a number of reasons.
Feel free to shoot me an email and I will call you back if you want to hire a private a attorney. A public defender is also available for a criminal littering charge, and they should be able to handle a case like this I believe. It is your option which way you decide to go. But spilling gas from your car accidentally should not be litterring.
