When he is pulled over, he hands the Deputy a bank statement that says he has over 1,500,000 in his bank account and that this exempts him from insurance requirements. (He also claims that the Sheriff personally gave him permission to drive around without a plate.) He is cited anyway and convicted at trial. He then tries to have all the charges thrown out on appeal on a number of "creative" "theories" including that NC isn't actually a Legal State. It sounds like a circus act that some of the nutjobs in GNG would put on.
