"I routinely record cops when I see them."

A Florida man won a traffic case in court last week — and he managed to do so while wearing a "f*** the police" shirt.

According to a post he authored on Live Leak, Michael Burns was issued a ticket by the Broward County Sheriff's office for allegedly having his license plate obstructed.

Burns, however, contended that he was innocent of the charges and instead said the cop was seeking out revenge for an encounter he had earlier that night with him.

"I routinely record cops when I see them. I saw a group of about 10 on the side of highway 27 in Broward County Florida kicking people out that were hanging out at 1:30 in the morning. It was public property and I was told they were only being kicked out to 'ruin their fun' by the first officer I contacted," he wrote. "The next officer I ran into told me I had to leave."

"I knew I didn't but by that time there were only 3 cars left being kicked out and seemingly there was nothing left to record. I got the Deputy's name that kicked me out and I left," Burns added.

According to the Florida man, "as soon" as he left, the same officer started following him and shortly pulled him over and gave him a ticket.

In court, Burns decided to wear a "f*** the police" shirt to prove a point. Despite the inflammatory attire, he won his case after a short hearing.
