It took him eight hours to make the 29 mile trek, but a Fulton County man was determined to get to Lilburn to pay a traffic ticket.
WSB-TV reports the man made the trek from a shelter in downtown Atlanta on Tuesday. He started walking at 1 a.m. through the single digit temperatures and below zero wind chills on his way to Lilburn Municipal Court.
The man's car was totaled in a crash, for which he was ticketed. He told police he was afraid a warrant would be issued for him if he was a no-show.
He was about to begin his journey back to Atlanta, but that's when Officer Andy Blimline stepped in.
Blimline and other officers offered to pay for the man's cab fare, which came to $80. At first, the man refused, but eventually accepted the ride.
