British defendent demands trial by combat over UK£25 fine

Leon Humphreys, of Bury St Edmunds, England, failed to notify the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) that his Suzuki motorcycle was off the road, incurring a UK£25 fine, but instead of payment, Humphreys demanded the ancient right to trial by combat.

Humphreys offered to fight a champion put up by the DVLA using "samurai swords, Ghurka knives or heavy hammers."
