A makeshift mannequin that failed to fool police monitoring a high-occupancy-vehicle lane fetched $15,000 in an eBay auction, and the proceeds will go to charity, the buyer has announced.
Denver-based Video Professor bought the Styrofoam head, coat hanger and clothing stuffed with newspapers from HOV scofflaw Greg Pringle, 53, of Broomfield, Colo., said Brian Olson, a company spokesman.
As part of his sentence handed down earlier this month, Pringle agreed to donate any profits from a Web site Ã¢Â€Â” launched to free Ã¢Â€ÂœTillieÃ¢Â€? after she was impounded by police Ã¢Â€Â” and the auction to the Alive At 25 driver safety awareness program.
Ã¢Â€ÂœWeÃ¢Â€Â™ve rescued Tillie from a life of crime, and we hope to rehabilitate her so she can be a contributing dummy to our society,Ã¢Â€? Olson said.
Pringle was fined $115 and ordered to hold a sign reading Ã¢Â€ÂœHOV lane not for dummiesÃ¢Â€? alongside U.S. 36 for four hours. He was pulled over and ticketed Jan. 26 for driving in the lane reserved for carpools, motorcycles, buses and hybrid vehicles.
