American Tourist Dodges Ticket Inspector In Venice By Jumping Into Water


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A tourist in Venice had to do something. She's 18, climbed on a water bus in a Venetian canal, which sounds amazing - except she had no ticket. So when a ticket inspector approached, she did the natural thing and dived in the water. The Wyoming fare-jumper was then fined 450 euros for swimming without permission. A stiff penalty, but she paid it with a credit card. And who's to say the experience wasn't worth it? It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
