Woman Gives Strange Religious Reason For Why A Cop Couldn't Give Her A Ticket

A woman in the Netherlands was pulled over by police because she was using her phone and not wearing a seatbelt. The officer pulled her over, and the excuse she gave him was totally unexpected.

If the encounter wasn't caught on film, a lot of people might believe it was nothing more than an internet legend. It is an actual police encounter, however. Police officer Patrick Vermeulen pulled a Muslim woman over for driving without a seatbelt and using her cell phone.

The woman told the officer she wasn't strapped in because a doctor told her not to use the seat belt for medical reasons. She said she had a note from her doctor.

When asked about the phone, she told the officer she wasn't making a call. She was using it to cure her toothache. The woman explains she was listening to the Koran, which she says is an excellent cure for toothaches.

The flustered woman was angry about the camera and argued with the film crew to turn it off. The crew of the show 'Road Offenders' refused to comply. The officer explained to her that they had a right to film on public roads.

The woman also refused to shake hands with the officer, citing religious reasons. The officer fined her for using the phone and attempting to fraudulently use a doctor's note. He also recommended that she take an aspirin for her toothache next time.
