Two police officers flipped a coin to decide the fate of a driver... and arrested her.
The driver, Sarah Webb, was pulled over because she was speeding down the highway on wet pavement. She was going about 80 mph when she was caught by police officers Courtney Brown and Kristee Wilson.
Webb had pleaded that she was late to work. Officers Brown and Wilson were faced with a decision.
“What do you think? Just tickets?” Brown asks Wilson, as Webb patiently waited in her sedan.
Officer Brown opened up an app that performs a digital coin flip. Heads, arrest. Tails, release.
Tails was the result of the flip but Brown doesn't hesitate and puts Webb under arrest.
“You put a lot of people’s lives in jeopardy,” Brown tells Webb.
Webb didn't know about the coin flip until she was contacted by the station.
“Wow, these people put my freedom in the hands of a coin flip,” Webb said.
