The self-employed furniture restorer is refusing to pay the £60 fine and the case may now proceed to court.
The Daily Mail newspaper states that the policeman involved is nicknamed 'PC Shiny Buttons' for his zealous approach to the job, which saw him issue a £50 ticket for littering to a man who accidentally dropped a £10 note in the street.
