Supreme Court Justice Scalia Ticketed for Triggering 4 Car Fender-Bender

Just 'cause he's good on the bench doesn't mean he's good on the road

Justice Antonin Scalia

WASHINGTON (AP/THE BLAZE) -- Just because he's good on the bench doesn't mean he's good on the road.

U.S. Park Police ticketed Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia after a four-car fender-bender Tuesday along the George Washington Parkway. No one was injured in the accident, police said.

Scalia, 75, was driving his car to work at the time of the accident, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said. He was on the bench when the court's morning session began about 10 a.m. EDT.

Police said Scalia was driving south on the parkway just before 9 a.m. when his car collided with a vehicle in front of him, triggering a chain reaction. The justice's car was towed from the scene.

Park Police Sgt. David Schlosser said Scalia received a ticket for following too closely, The Washington Post reported. The justice can pay the $70 fine and $20 special assessment or contest the ticket in court, Schlosser said.
