Pennsylvania is rough. Constables allegedly drove almost 500 miles round trip to arrest a man (in shackles) who had underpaid his traffic ticket by $47.
One of the constables, when questioned, saw no discordance in traveling 8 hours to collect a $47 fine.
Update: 4-17-11: Gas averages $3.87 a gallon in Pennsylvania. Assuming the constables got 30 miles to the gallon, they spent $60 in gas to go after that $47.
