SEIZED SPEEDING TO BRIDE.

The New York Times
December 5, 1922


"So Happy I Put Foot on Gas," He Says—Excuse Frees Him.

The bride-to-be of Joseph Robertson, 34, a broker of 3,099 Broadway, was kept waiting in Albany yesterday while the bridegroom was in West Farms Court in the Bronx to answer to a charge of speeding at thirty miles an hour on the Grand Concourse.  He was halted by Motorcycle Patrolman William Mott and served with a summons.

"I was so happy over the thought of my coming marriage and so anxious to get to Albany on time, I unthinkingly put my foot on the gas," Robertson told Magistrate Edward Weil today.

"That's the best excuse I ever heard," said the Court.  "It deserves a suspended sentence."  And Robertson was free to hurry northward.
