You may have heard about this story-

Florida drivers ‘detained’ if tolls paid with big bills

Whenever Joel Chandler tried to pay a $1 toll with a $20 bill in Polk County, he was asked by toll collectors to provide personal information.

The information, he said, included his name, phone number, address and date of birth. Unless he provided it, Chandler said, he could not proceed through the toll.

“So you all detain people until you get their personal information?” Chandler asked in one encounter he recorded with a cell phone camera.

“Yes, sir,” the toll taker said.

Last month, Chandler filed a federal lawsuit against state transportation officials saying toll workers across Florida had for at least four years refused to allow drivers through tolls if they paid with large bills — unless they provided personal details.

“They’re doing this without probable cause,” said Chandler, 47, a Lakeland man who describes himself as a public records activist who has filed numerous lawsuits against the state. “They’re doing something even police officers aren’t allowed to do.” read more

That is only the tip of the iceberg.   Friday we will be talking to Joel Chandler and find out what he and his brother Robert have uncovered about this situation through their tenacity (and Florida’s liberal open records laws).  We will also get some details on the Federal Civil Rights Class Action lawsuit filed by Joel and Robert Chandler in Tampa, Florida on February 8, 2011.

Troublemakers seem to get no respect!

Joel Chandler writes;

“On numerous occasions I have become the target of criminal investigations by law enforcement agencies because I exercised a constitutionally protected right.  These agencies have included police departments, sheriff’s departments, the Department of Homeland Security, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Federal Protective Services, Department of Energy, FBI, Secret Service and others.
