ROSWELL, Ga. -- Last Friday night, Bill Cooper of Roswell got a phone call from a man claiming to be a lieutenant with the Fulton County Sheriff's Office.
The caller said he had a photo of Cooper's car speeding through the Georgia 400 toll booth.
"He persisted in his claim that they were going to send somebody out to arrest me unless I gave him a credit card number so he could put a $242 fine down," Cooper told 11Alive News on Monday.
But Cooper smelled a rat. He knew the Georgia 400 toll booths have cameras to see if people have paid to go through, but they do NOT photograph speeders. What's more, he wasn't even driving on the road when the caller claimed the photo was taken.
"The more I kept him on the line, the more I realized that he was feeding me a line of bull," Cooper said.
