When Jonathan Frieman of San Rafael, Calif., was pulled over for driving alone in the carpool lane, he argued to the officer that, actually, he did have a passenger.

He waved his corporation papers at the officer, he told NBCBayArea.com, saying that corporations are people under California law.

Frieman doesn't actually believe this. For 10 years, Frieman says he had been trying to get pulled over to get ticketed and to take his argument to court -- that corporations and people are not the same. Mission accomplished in October, when he was slapped with a fine -- a minimum of $481.

Heh... Going to court to challenge that corporations are people. Interesting.
