Man with no arms wants apology from cop

The man with no arms firmly believes having a Saskatoon police officer say sorry for how he was treated will be a step forward for other disabled people doing their utmost to lead regular lives. Simonar made headlines across the country earlier this year when he complained about getting his first ticket for not wearing a seatbelt — he can't physically buckle up but has been driving in customized vehicles for years.

The fine resulting from his ticket was withdrawn in court after the province gave him a medical exemption allowing him to drive without a belt.
