NJ Mayor Praises Cop for Ticketing Him

No exceptions for talking on a cell phone while driving even for local New Jersey mayor

A New Jersey mayor is praising a police officer in his hometown for ticketing him for driving while talking on a cellphone.

Old Bridge Mayor Owen Henry was about to turn into the municipal complex when he was pulled over and given a summons on Tuesday.

Henry tells The Star-Ledger of Newark he was wrong for violating the law and will pay the $100 fine.

It's against the law in New Jersey for motorists to talk or text on cellphones.

The mayor says he normally uses a hands-free device, which is allowed, but apparently he had taken it out of his vehicle.
