An Amarillo attorney has announced he will represent the first person ticketed for violating the city's new hand held device while driving ban, for free.

Whether for the publicity or for a more altruistic goal, Amarillo attorney Adam Tisdell has made it clear he will fight the city's new ordinance in court.  All he needs is someone that has been charged with the crime and their willingness to let him fight it.

Tisdall maintains he knows how to fight the citation and win in court.

The ban went into effect at the first of the year.  Currently police are only writing warnings to motorists in violation and have written around two dozen warnings.

Officers will begin issuing $200 tickets beginning in February and if you are the first one caught, call Adam Tisdell.
