Lieutenant Governor Don Beyer's driver says he WANTS a speeding ticket.
Chesterfield County police, however, REFSUE to cite Chris Elliott for speeding because of a century-old statute that protects General Assembly members and their aides from FALSE imprisonment.
Elliott and Beyer were returning Saturday to Richmond when the lieutenant governor's Volvo was clocked at 73 miles per hour in a 55-mile-per-hour zone.
Police stopped Elliott, but did NOT give him a ticket.
Elliott apparently plans to pay the county 90 dollars -- with or withOUT a speeding citation.
