UPDATED 2:56 A.M. ET (DEC. 16, U.S.A.) A purported “sovereign citizen” wanted for failure to appear in court at an impaired-driving proceeding led sheriff’s deputies on a 15-minute chase, the Brunswick County (N.C.) Sheriff’s Office said.

Jennifer Melisa Herring, 37, of Myrtle Beach S.C., now has been charged with Driving While Impaired, Felony Fleeing to Elude Arrest, Driving While License Revoked, Careless and Reckless Driving and Driving Left of Center.

“During the pursuit, the driver called 911 and stated there was no emergency, and she would pull over for $300,000,” the sheriff’s office said.

WECT.com has a video report, along with details of the 911 call.

From the station’s website (italics added):

Herring repeatedly told the 911 operator that the officers trying to pull her over were creating a “false sense of emergency” and that she wasn’t going to stop driving because she wasn’t speeding.

“No, I’m not pulling over because pulling over is voluntary I’m not doing nothing wrong,” Herring told 911. “Are you ready to pay the $300,000? That’s all I want to know. If you want to pay the $300,000 then I’ll pull over. That’s my offer – $300,000. That’s my offer, I’m asking you to accept it.”

  1. “Under color of law” seems to be the catch phrase for these guys.

  2. To whom it may concern, for and on the record you are being noticed regarding unauthorized use of copyright and trademarked material. The fee for unauthorized use is $500,000.00. This is a self executing contract please govern yourself accordingly, and remove all violations in order to avoid formal resolution.

  4. Quick note:

    I’m apparently being told I violated a “self-executing Contract” by writing this story about Jennifer Melisa Herring and owe her $500,000 every time I use her name in a story.

    Under the theory of this “self-executing Contract,” I’ve agreed to have a UCC Financing Statement filed against me and also have agreed to pay Ms. Herring within 72 hours.

    Not sure if any other media outlets received an email that more or less demanded $500,000 or more from this purported “sovereign.”

    The “sovereigns” are big on self-executing contracts. ASD figure Curtis Richmond once dreamed up this sort of stuff and got his ass sued under the federal RICO statute.

    Sorry, but, sometimes the only way to respond to absurdity is with more absurdity.

  6. This “sovereign citizen” is obviously an amateur. A real “sovereign citizen” would know that their name has to be spelled with all capitals, preferably with hyphens or colons for it to have any legal meaning.

    I think everyone is safe from being sued unless JENNIFER MELISA HERRING, JENNIFER: MELISA-HERRING, JENNIFER-MELISA-HERRING, or JENNIFER-MELISA: HERRING learns what a real “sovereign citizen” needs to know.

    If JENNIFER MELISA HERRING is thinking if suing me, then I claim to be a “freeman of the land” and I declare that I do not recognize your unconstitutional “copyright” law.

    How absurd would it be to see one “sovereign citizen” sue another “sovereign citizen” in a court that neither of them recognize?

  7. Apparently, Jennifer M. Herring hasn’t read the Constitution, either, seeing as the Bill of Rights included the right known as “freedom of the press,” which it sounds vaguely like she is trying to deny Patrick. Hmm. I wonder if her wording could be taken as an extortion attempt, as well? Not being a student of law, I don’t know, there.

    Besides, if no one was permitted to use a name to identify who was being discussed, she’d likely get the functional equivalent of a name in a form such as “Fat Broad.”

    That would be quite absurd, Tony — not that irresolvable conundrums ever have posed much of a barrier to the “sovereigns.”

    Snippet from the Dec. 7 Chicago Sun Times:

    ______________________________________________________

    The alleged bank robber claims to be a “sovereign” exempt from prosecution — a meaningless designation cited by a small but growing group of defendants in federal court, including a man who was Tasered by deputies in another case on Wednesday and third defendant who is refusing to sit in the courtroom during another trial this week.

    ______________________________________________________

    http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/16850504-418/alleged-bank-robber-defends-self-temporarily-restrained-to-chair.html

    So, if we applied the messages from “JENNA” to the Chicago bank-robbery case, Jose Banks would have a claim against the Sun Times — apparently for having the temerity to send a reporter to a public courtroom to cover a public trial.

    Any reporter from any publication would owe Jose Banks $500,000 each and every time his name was mentioned in a story. Among the absurd results of that, of course, is that if Banks is acquitted of the bank-robbery charges, any reporter who used his name in a story about the acquittal would owe him $500,000 per instance.

  9. @LRM,

    If “JENNA” applies a “self-executing CONTRACT” to you, based on your post above, you’d owe Ms. Herring $11.5 million under “JENNA’s” apparent theory.

    But if “JENNA” takes you on as a client and Ms. Herring sues you, “JENNA” could really pile on. Assuming “JENNA” gets a percentage of the fees from two clients battling in court, she could get a cut from both you and Ms. Herring every time either of you mentioned one another’s name in a court filing.

    Man, a gushing spigot of fees from two clients battling each other in court!

    I’m not sure if “JENNA” is licensed to practice law in North Carolina, though.

    I wonder if she noticed that she “noticed” me in her two transmissions sent by wire from North Carolina while trying to foist a “self-executing Contract” and making a demand that I remove the story about her apparent client.

    Surely LRM could invest in some banners from banners brokers and the maturity of those banners would cover the fees in no time.

  12. Sovereigns have a real problem here. While they’d love to see their movement grow……there seems to be a self-imposed roadblock put up by them with these ridiculous claims of not being able to use their name.

    I mean, how would anyone know who to contact for more info on the movement should they want to join?

    Something that has always made me wonder.

    If a sovrun wants to Tweet the fact they had a hamburger or a drink, how do they do it it without using the copyrighted and trademarked “Coca-Cola” or “Big Mac”

    Hi Whip,

    In the story linked below, you’ll notice this fanciful construction put together by Michael Howard Reed, now serving two prison sentences for federal crimes:

    Snippet:

    __________________________________________________________

    Reed, whose name surfaced in the 2008 SEC Ponzi case against Gold Quest International after he claimed to be the “attorney general” of an unrecognized tribe and asserted a claim against the agency for $1.7 trillion, asserted in a separate case that the government could not prosecute him because he was immune to U.S. law and had trademarked his name.

    Here is a verbatim section from one of Reed’s nonsensical pleadings in federal court in North Dakota. (Italics/identation added):

    “boa-kaa-konan-na-ishkawaanden=Michael-Howard-Reed=original-creditor-original-beneficiary: for MICHAEL-HOWARD-REED=original-debtor-trustee agent; Under the Penalties of Perjury Affirm that MICHAEL HOWARD REED©TM is a Fictional Entity . . .”

  16. ProfHenryHiggins: I wonder if her wording could be taken as an extortion attempt, as well?

    Hello Professor,

    “JENNA’s” two communications were sent by wire from the area of Supply, N.C. It’s just the latest in a series of threats from would-be “sovereigns” or apologists for “sovereigns.” I’ve received some uber bizarre ones from apologists for JSS/JPB and Zeek, for instance.

    Interestingly, the sheriff’s office says this about the alleged chase involving Ms. Herring (emphasis added):

    “On Monday, 12/10/2012, at approximately 11:25 pm, a vehicle pursuit occurred in the area of Holden Beach Road, and Oxpen Road in SUPPLY, North Carolina.”

    So, it looks to me as though Ms. Herring got arrested in or near the town of Supply — and then I started getting “noticed” over the Internet by a person acting on Ms. Herring’s behalf in or near the town of Supply.

    The domain cited by “JENNA” — http://www.copyright-name.com — appears to be registered in the name of Les Raketti in Washington state. According to the registration data, Les is “Marketing Director” of “VisiontoWealth Solutions.”

    It’s almost too strange to contemplate right now.

    Doughnut shops, too. The “Supreme Court” of the “Arby’s Indians” used the address of a doughnut shop.

    He did a half— job. He has all but disappeared after I paid him $150 to handle the redemption process for me. I had to file a ucc financing statement by myself in my state. He wouldnt even look at it to see if I did it the right way. He is lazy and acts like a clown.
