Sarah Palin cited for speeding in Alaska hometown

July 23, 2014

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Former U.S. vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is facing a $154 ticket for speeding in her Alaska hometown.

The former Alaska governor was pulled in Wasilla over July 16 and cited for driving between 10 and 19 mph (16 and 30 kph) over the speed limit.

The penalty includes a $144 fine and $10 police training surcharge.

An attorney for Palin said he didn’t know details of the case but that Palin would pay the fine. A Wasilla Police Department spokesman did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

In discussing the ticket with TMZ, Palin made an auto racing reference, joking that she wasn’t speeding, she was “qualifying.”
