Regarding: "Just About Hit It"
Yes, I believe that Sondra's grandfather may have been a victim of the practice. Awhile back I read a story on your site that said Oregon does this. I live in Wisconsin and they also suspend WDL for improper reporting to a police officer claiming a bigfoot sighting. It is a class A misdemeanor and a fine can be levied up to to $1,000 I am quite sure of this.
I work for State Farm and have had to cancel policies because of the suspension. We would not cancel for reporting a bigfoot per say. It seems to me this is what is at play in your state. A person who falsifies a police report can't be covered with our company. A check of our computer data shows AK, AZ, NE, OR, GA, WV, NC, DE, MN, NM are using this charge. In Oregon it's called Filing A False Police Report. There are also notations for WA and UT for making false reports but are class B infractions.
Thank you. This is very informative.
