AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Former U.S. Interior Secretary Gale Norton is out of public office and out of patience with a local police officer she says won't pay for a broken window caused by his golf ball.
Norton wrote a letter earlier this month to city officials in her hometown of Aurora, Colo., complaining that Officer Marc Sears refused to pay for a window he broke with an errant golf ball June 17. She said Sears agreed to pay for the window but never paid the estimated $250.
According to The Aurora Sentinel, Norton did not ask for the city to compensate her, but said she wanted a copy of her complaint in the officer's file.
Norton was Interior Secretary from 2001 to 2006 under former President George W. Bush.
