A Michigan man attempting to pay a parking ticket with pennies at the District Court in February alleged that he was assaulted by two guards causing him to sustain injuries and defecate in his pants. On Wednesday the man filed a lawsuit against his purported assailants.

Royal Oak resident Anthony Sevy paid a visit to the 44th District Court in order to settle a $10 fee for a parking violation. He wanted to pay the balance using a credit card and he was informed that he would be responsible for an extra $1.75 surcharge fee.

In an action that Sevy’s lawyer dubbed a “symbolic protest,” he decided he would pay the entirety of the fine in rolls of pennies. The clerks were unwilling to accept the coins, and they asked Sevy to leave the premises.
