KNWA TV reports on a Bethel Heights police officer's allegation that he has the police chief on tape coaching him on ways to increase the number of traffic tickets he writes.

"The message that he was giving me was do whatever it takes to get the tickets even if you have to make somebody do something wrong," says Corporal Timothy Brasuell.

Reason.com rounded the item up into a piece it did about cops and ticket quotas.

UPDATE: The police chief has been fired, KNWA reports.
