Man Fined For Spitting

(Minneapolis, MN) -- A 21-year-old Twin Cities man is learning the expensive way that Minneapolis has a law banning spitting in public. KARE-TV reports Myles Thomas was fined 115-dollars when a police officer saw him spit as he walked along the road in Dinkytown with friends. Thomas says he was just getting over an illness and that's what caused him to have to spit. He's not planning to fight the ticket.
