Road test-osterone: S.C. driver ticketed for explicit ornaments

It wasn't a pair of fuzzy dice that got a South Carolina driver in trouble with the law

(CBS/AP) SPARTANBURG, S.C. - A motorist in Spartanburg County was ticketed recently over an "anatomically correct" ornament on his vehicle.

What we mean is...he displayed a replica of testicles on his truck.

A Spartanburg County sheriff's deputy stopped the truck Sunday evening after noticing the "auto parts" on the rear bumper. The incident report says the driver removed the graphic display after being stopped, but he was arrested for driving without a license.

He was also given a warning ticket for having an obscene display.

Last summer a woman in Berkeley County, S.C. was ticketed for a similar "decoration" on the back of her truck.

Twice in one year.

Still, not quite an automotive trend.
