Man Repays Insurance Money With 4 Tons Of Coins

Posted: Updated:

MARION, Ill. (AP) - A southern Illinois businessman has paid off part of a court-ordered legal settlement with nearly four tons of quarters packed into dozens of bags.
    
Roger Herrin, of Harrisburg, was ordered by an appellate court to repay $500,000 in insurance money related to a 2001 car accident in which his teenage son died.
    
The reimbursement followed years of legal disputes about how the insurance money was apportioned to the crash victims.
    
So in protest, Herrin repaid nearly a third of the money - $150,000 - with 50-pound bags of quarters he had trucked in by the Federal Reserve bank in St. Louis. The coins were delivered Wednesday to a Marion law firm.
    
Herrin says he paid in quarters because paying in pennies wasn't feasible.

    ST. LOUIS, M.O. - Photogenic or not, this certainly isn't what the Zaring family was expecting when they saw the results of their 'professional' photo shoot.  The St. Louis family says they paid $250 to the photographer, who claimed to be a professional. What they got in return was...unique.  "Ok. This is NOT a joke," Pam and Dave Zaring wrote on Facebook. According to the couple's post, their photographer said 'the shadows were really bad '
