 No lucky pennies here: Police have charged Jason West, an aggrieved medical patient in Vernal, Utah, with disorderly conduct. His alleged crime? Attempting to pay a disputed medical bill of $25 entirely in pennies.

The story, reported in the Salt Lake City Deseret News, describes the "penny offense" this way: West, 38, did not believe he owed the medical clinic $25 but came in to pay the fee in person. He first asked the clinic staff if the facility accepted cash payments, and then dumped 2,500 pennies onto the counter and demanded that they be counted.

But West apparently hadn't counted on the clinic calling the police; the arresting officer contended that West's protest served "no legitimate purpose." The charge carries a fine that can go as high as $140--and there's no word as yet on what currency West will use to pay it.

 I hope the judge throws this case out....  clearly  they do not value someone who actually pays disputed bills.

Shame on such a medical facility....  I hope  people donate pennies so he can pay the  bs fine in pennies...

As long as he  had exactly  2,500 pennies   that is money  in God we trust... what now you can't pay with pennies ???

The disorderly conduct was the way he acted not the paying with pennies.

Pennies are legal tender and I think he could pay his fine with pennies, if he keeps his conduct in order! LOL

So, if I owed you a quarter and paid it back to you by grabbing a slingshot and shooting it at your forehead, would you value my trustworthiness in settling my debt? Would you praise my strong, American values? Would you say, "Thank you, sir. Please come again"?

Yeah Turf come do that...  LORDZ would show you love... despite the  Fool you are and look like....   nice score BTW....  why do you even bother with your stupid  additions ?

So if he was to slowly count the pennies  do you think the same result wouldn't have happened ?   When I ran a business with idiotic customers if every time someone acted a fool and I called the police I'd have the po po at my place most of the time.

Turf  come on dude you'd be lucky to get a dime.... LMAO...

So theres a law on the books that you can't toss pennies on a counter and ask  someone to count them so they don't later claim you shorted them ?

So if your bill was 357 dollars and you worked as a stripper and you threw dollars like people throw them at you ?  you'd also be in violation of what bad manners ?  hardly disorderly conduct, unless you were screaming and making  statements  like  TURDSCAPE.

Correct. The same result would not have happened.

I'm not sure what you mean. I didn't ask for a dime.

No. There isn't such a law on the books, as far as I'm aware.
