A doctor in Oslo was fined for speeding, but after initially accepting the fine, he followed the police and accused the officers of being racists. Then the case ended in court.
The doctor, a man in his 30s, was fined NOK 6,400 at the end of January for driving 108 km/h in an 80-zone at Alnabru in Oslo, newspaper Vårt Oslo writes.
The man first accepted the fine but changed his mind and followed the police patrol that gave him the fine all the way to Majorstuen. The police officers then became aware that the man was following them and stopped the patrol car.
According to a recent ruling from the Oslo District Court, the man then ended up in an argument with the two police officers, whom he described as racists.
According to the verdict, he also called the officers idiots because they had at least ten years less education than him.
In court, the man denied criminal guilt. But the Oslo District Court sentenced the man to pay a fine of NOK 9,600 for insulting public officials, in addition to legal costs of NOK 2,000.
