A Norwalk man is fighting a ticket he says he got because the police officer thought his hash brown patty was a cell phone.
Jason Stiber was stopped and ticketed last April after he picked up a hash brown patty at McDonald's on his way to work in Norwalk. The officer who stopped him says he saw Stiber talking into a cell phone. Stiber's attorney says cell phone records show he wasn't using his phone at the time he was stopped.
Stiber has spent about a thousand dollars so far, fighting a distracted driving ticket that carries a 300 dollar fine. That fight continued Friday when a retrial he demanded began. The judge will weigh all evidence, including the cell phone records from Stiber.
