Norwegian billionaire given US$30,400 drunken driving fine
A 22-year-old Norwegian student has been handed a 250,000-kroner (US$30,400) fine for drunken driving -- but can still count herself lucky. Katharina G. Andresen is reportedly Norway's richest woman, with a fortune estimated by Forbes at $1.23 billion. Fines for drunken driving in Norway are based on the defendant's income. Newspaper Finansavisen reported that Oslo City Court said the penalty could have been up to 40 million kroner ($4.9 million) if based on Andresen's assets, but they "have not yielded any dividend yet" and she has no fixed income.
