Cop Tickets Woman in Labor on Her Way to Hospital

Jennifer and John Davis wrote a letter to the paper explaining they were jammed up in traffic trying to get to the Hospital.

The couple says they started driving in the breakdown lane, which is illegal.

They said two state troopers waived them through, once they found out Jennifer was in labor.

The Davis' say a third trooper pulled them over and even after making Jennifer show him her belly to prove she was pregnant, he still made them wait while he wrote up a citation.

A police spokesman said the trooper who gave the ticket made a decision to enforce the breakdown lane law.

The couple says they do plan to appeal the ticket, but are still not sure if they are going to file a complaint against the officer.
