MENOMONIE, WISC. — Instead of getting a speeding ticket, one Wisconsin college student ended up learning a life lesson.
A police officer in of Monomonie, a town in northwestern Wisconsin, pulled over a UW-Stout student for speeding in November.
The student told the officer he was hurrying to his friend’s house because he needed help tying a neck tie. The student didn’t know how, so he needed to stop on his way to his presentation on campus.
The officer then proceeded to tie the tie as the student retrieved the proper paperwork from his car.
When the officer handed the tie back, he realized it was too short, so he retied it.
Eventually, the officer let the student off with a warning.
No word on how the student did on the presentation.
