For country star Jason Aldean, you’d think a $100 fine would be no big deal, but it’s a principal thing right? Although the fine probably won’t hurt Aldean’s bank account much, he still ranted on twitter following his unlucky day at the beach yesterday. After receiving the ticket for swimming in what officials say were dangerous water conditions Jason voiced his frustrations on twitter last night by saying, “Dear officer who gave me a ticket on the beach today for swimming in the water with double red flags.. Thanx for the warning Barney Fife!” He later said “I know he was doin his job, but im pretty sure i wouldnt drown in knee deep water. Gimme a break!”
After Jason’s facebook and twitter followers got pretty riled up about his comments, both supporting him and some supporting law enforcement, he later tweeted, “Chill people… Im not bitchin, im just sayin… When there is 100 people in the water and u pick 2 of them to give a ticket to… WTH?”
“I respect all law enforcement & i am thankful for what they do for us, but me & that 12 yr old who got the other 100$ tix.Are a lil bitter.”
Even after it seemed like Aldean was done venting he tweeted a picture of the beach with several people in the water calling it “exhibit A.”
I guess this just proves that even if you are a star you’ll still have to deal with the long arm of the law. I’ve gotten a few speeding tickets and I’ve tried many things to get away with it, but never with any success. What have you done to try and get away with a ticket and did it work?
