'Literary litterbug' tossed 600 books from vehicle

Monday, August 17, 2015

LONGMONT, Colo. -- A man dubbed the "literary litterbug" for tossing more than 600 books along a busy Colorado highway must complete 30 hours of community service and pay $1,725 in restitution and court costs. Glenn Pladsen, 62, pleaded guilty Thursday to three counts of littering. He was pulled over in April after throwing books from his vehicle. Pladsen said he dumped the books on his way to work because he couldn't figure out any other way to get rid of them.
