Going Too Far

Well, whatever. Apparently, a man in the UK was refused his solution to a minor traffic violation, and instead had to pay his fine.

The Violation: Didn't notify the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) that his Suzuki was off the road

The Fine: 25 pounds

The Plea: Not Guilty

His Offered Solution: to fight a designated champion of the DVLA to the death with "samurai swords, Ghurka knives or heavy hammers", which he claims is his right under European human rights legislation

The Verdict: Yeah, right Bonzo. Now you pay a 200 pound fine, plus 100 pounds court costs. Go home.
