Is this from The Onion or have lawmakers gone berserk?
In the 90s this happened to one of my friends, pulled over for a redlight in DC, he had a spent .22 in his cup holder, used it to cut cigars, they arrested him and impounded his car. poor guy had to go to two court cases, one to get his car back, one for the charge. paid a huge fine and impound fees. This is not a new law.
