SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — Kevin Morgan is no dummy — but he got in trouble for driving with one.
Morgan, 28, got a $351 citation for putting a kickboxing dummy in the passenger seat of his car, then driving in a lane reserved for vehicles carrying more than one person.
“I think he was pretty embarrassed because all the people driving by were laughing,” Officer Will Thompson said. “About the only thing he said was, ’Well, that didn’t help me very much today, did it?”’
Thompson often parks next to the car pool lane and stands on his car door rail to look down into passing vehicles. His point of view allowed him to see Morgan’s dummy — which was wearing a Miami Dolphins jacket and a baseball cap, but had no legs.
