Oklahoma City, Okla._An old fine came back to haunt incoming House Speaker T.W. Shannon Thursday. Apparently, he forgot to take care of a ticket he got 10 years ago in Grady County. He was notified by reporters about an arrest warrant that was issued for it back in 2003.
Shannon said he was ticketed for speeding in 2002 but didn't pay the fines on time. That resulted in the suspension of his driver's license. He later got it reinstated.
Shannon said he wasn't aware about the outstanding fines. Once he realized, he immediately took care of it. Court records show $290 was paid to the Grady County Court Clerk's office Thursday.
