Police are wrong for citing a man for trying to pay his bill with pennys. If he had thrown the pennies then maybe they would have a case. But to say that his conduct was disorderly goes to far. So! The pennies spilt all over the counter at the hospitals desk, it is not the responsibility of the payor to furnish the payee with an office that would allow someone to pay with pennies. Pennies are U.S. Legal tender and are good for payment of goods and services in all of the U.S. jurisdictions. And since the bill was in dispute, I am sure no one cited the hospital for harrassment either, because they have the right to notify a client of his debt. There had to be another reason for the disorderly charge. This ticket would have been thrown out by me, unless he made a verbal physical threat. Simply demanding that the pennies be counted after they spilt is not a crime. The staff at this hospital should be prepared for such an event. A ticket for dropping pennies on a desk at any counter for payment of a bill is not illegal. If he interfered with the treatment of a patient in an emergency situation would be disorderly conduct. Censorship is illegal in the United States. Freedom of Speech is a protected civil right.
