The police chief in Sperry, Okla. wrote himself a speeding ticket after a traffic camera caught him speeding. He says he's going to pay the more than $300 ticket he wrote himself.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The police chief in Sperry, Okla., wrote himself a speeding ticket. Justin Burch apologized after a traffic camera caught him driving up to 80 miles per hour. Now, he could have let himself off with a warning. In fact, he says he might not have written the ticket at all had technology not caught up with him. But since it did, he will pay the $300. It is not clear if Chief Burch asked himself for his license and registration, please, before writing the citation. It's MORNING EDITION.
