A Massachusetts man fighting a speeding ticket in court had a unique explanation-- the officer's radar gun may have picked up a deer. The AP reports Dennis Sayers was clocked going 40 miles per hour (mph) in a 30mph zone in West Newbury back in November. He got a $105 ticket. Sayers appealed in court on Thursday (January 26th) expressing concern that a deer may have been in the vicinity at the time his speed was clocked. When confronted by the skeptical judge, Sayers replied that anything was possible. The fine was upheld. Deer, by the way, can run approximately 30 mph.
