“A 21-year-old college student was arrested at Philadelphia International Airport in 2003 when a search through her luggage turned up three condoms filled with flour.

She was jailed for three weeks and released after tests showed that the condoms didn’t contain any illegal drugs.

She sued the city and this week was given a settlement $180,000″ – Link.
If you are doing something which will you think will make the police arrest you with the pure intention of making money by then sueing them are you breaking any law? I know intent is hard to prove but even so…
