Minnesota man hit with $115 ticket after spitting on sidewalk

Police officers in Minneapolis handed a man a $115 ticket for spitting on a snow-covered sidewalk Monday as he was walked with a group of friends to grab a pizza, USA Today reported.

"It is a little wacky," Myles Thomas, 21, told the paper. "I mean, what can you do though? It is the law. You're supposed to obey the laws of the land."

According to a city ordinance, it is illegal to spit on sidewalks, buses and public areas.

He reportedly admitted to spitting and said next time, instead of spitting on the sidewalk, he will have to "just bring a bag or something."
