coin flip in Georgia has caused two police officers their jobs. Roswell police officers Courtney Brown & Kristee Wilson were fired Thursday after they used a coin flip app to determine whether or not to arrest a speeding driver.>> Do you know how fast you were just going, ma'am?

But the officers had no radar gun, and therefore no definitive proof.>> I mean, I don't have any sweep sections at the same time, but.
