Kimberly Du of Des Moines, Iowa, came up with a clever way to get out of paying traffic tickets.
Okay, maybe not that clever.
Court documents show that Du tried to avoid paying several tickets by sending a letter to the courthouse. The letter is allegedly signed by Du's mother and said Du died on Dec. 5, according to court documents.
Investigators said the information submitted include a phony obituary made to look like a page from The Des Moines Register's Web site that said Du died in car accident, and her mother's signature was forged. [Link, via Neatorama]
