A Texas man paid his speeding ticket with 22,000 pennies to "protest" the fine.

Brett Sanders of Frisco, Texas told KXAS‑TV that he did “nothing wrong” by driving 9 miles an hour over the speed limit on his street.

"I didn't hurt anybody. I didn't endanger anybody's life," he said.

Sanders fought the $220 ticket in court, but he lost his case.

"When my fine came due, I just decided I might as well pay with pennies and we'll make a big spectacle of it," Sanders said.

He went to the bank to withdraw the coins and brought them to the Frisco Municipal Court in five-gallon buckets, where he proceeded to dump them on the counter. He recorded the incident and posted the video to YouTube.

"It felt great. It really felt great," he said.

The staff at the Municipal Court told KXAS that it took them three hours to count the coins, and Sanders actually overpaid the city by $7.81.

"I’m just going to go ahead and let them keep that,” he said.
