Ricky Williams Arrested During Traffic Stop Austin, TX

Arresting someone for traffic tickets are one of the many dumb things about our justice system.

The reason they do it is strictly for money and no other reason.

The Austin Police Department says an officer stopped Ricky Williams, 40, in the 4400 block of Manchaca Road around 10:36 p.m. Tuesday because his car was missing a rear license plate. During the traffic stop, the officer discovered Williams had two outstanding traffic warrants, so he was taken to jail.

They could have let this go, he is a Texas legend for goodness sakes.

He paid a fine and went about his way
