A Wichita Falls man found himself under arrest after refusing to leave the county courthouse while trying to pay his property tax in $1 bills.
Timothy Andrew Norris, 27, was arrested on January 28th for criminal trespass charges and resisting arrest after refusing to leave the Wichita County Courthouse Annex.
The newspaper reports Norris attempted to pay $600-worth of property taxes with $1 bills. Wichita County Tax Assessor Collector Tommy Smyth says the bills were folded so tightly it took office personnel six minutes to unfold each bill.
Smyth then accused Norris of disrupting operations and asked him to leave. When Norris refused he was arrested. During the arrest the newspaper reports Norris pulled away from the deputy twice, bringing the resisting arrest charge.
