Ulysses S. Grant may have been the 18th president of the United States, but that didn’t mean that he always followed the law—even while he was in office. The skilled equestrian enjoyed traveling at high speeds, which was illegal. When Grant was caught going at a so-called “furious pace,” he was given a firm warning by policeman William West. Although Grant apologized, he was caught speeding the very next day by the very same officer. As a result, he was arrested and taken to the police station where he was booked and fined for his offense.
