[February 23, 2009]  NARRAGANSETT, R.I. (AP) -- A mother of three was arrested when she tried to pay a 13-year-old fine for a youthful misstep. Christina Dugan Lloyd was sorting old papers when she found a $2,000 citation from 1996 she said she forgot about. The offense: speeding through Utah with an expired driver's license and possession of a controlled substance.

InsuranceNow 38, married and with three kids, Lloyd called the sheriff in Utah on Monday to pay the fine. She was told someone would have to call her back.

The Providence Journal reported that instead, Narragansett police came to her house and arrested her. She was booked, held overnight and released the next day after paying the fine by credit card.

Lloyd said not paying the fine earlier was "so stupid" and that police and court personnel were nice.
