    MOUNT CARMEL, Tenn. Police in northeast Tennessee say Scott Gibson isn't the deputy director of the CIA and he'd have to pay his $75 speeding fine even if he were. On June 29, a Mount Carmel speed camera clocked the 56-year-old Rogersville resident going 66 mph in a 55 mph zone. He was sent a ticket.

    Assistant Police Chief Mike Campbell says Gibson mailed back a copy of the citation with a handwritten note, claiming he wasn't subject to local speed zones because he was the deputy chief of the CIA.

    The federal agency told police Gibson never had been an employee.

    Gibson was arrested for criminal impersonation and released on $500 bond. Campbell says federal charges are also pending.

    A telephone listing for Gibson did not take incoming calls.

    All that to save $75. Not a smart move.

    I think that he is about to find out just how cheap a speeding ticket can seem...when compared to other things.

    You mean they don't take your word for it and actually verify stuff. Dang. What is this world coming to? Where is the trust?

    Well with a job like deputy director of the CIA, you'd think he could afford to just pay the $75 fine.
