Warren Mayor Jim Fouts was pulled over Monday on the way to City Hall for going 45 mph in a 40 mph zone. The officer told him to watch it next time.
Fouts says he was uncomfortable the entire day with just a warning, thinking it might be construed as favoritism. So he called the deputy police commissioner and demanded the ticket.
Police delivered it to Fouts' office and Fouts paid the $100 fine.
Fouts told The Detroit News that he "had to set an example."
