Man refunded after trying to pay 40-year-old parking tickets
LINCOLN, Neb. - A University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduate got his money back after he tried to pay-off $100 worth of parking tickets he racked up while on campus over 40 years ago.
Kent Broyhill graduated from the university in 1974. Just before he graduated, he tried to pay off his parking tickets, but an officer told him the school only accepted cash. Broyhill didn't have the money in his pockets and the officer gave him a pass, on the condition that he would pay the fines as soon as he could.
Broyhill said he intended to pay the money, but he forgot about the fine until he had a conversation with a college friend. He sent the money to the school with a note explaining the story.
The school eventually sent him the money back, telling him the $100 fine was probably more than his tickets were worth, and thanked him for his gesture.
