WICHITA COUNTY, Texas -- Timothy Norris showed up at the Wichita County Courthouse just before the February 1 deadline to pay his property taxes.

The 27-year old's payment method wasn't exactly appreciated by the office staff, however. Norris allegedly folded each dollar-bill so tightly that it took county staff  six minutes to unfold each and every bill. Do the math and that's 3,600 minutes of unfolding. a taxing job to say the least.

Authorities say the whole ordeal caused quite a 'crinkle' in the work flow and when Norris was asked to leave he refused.

Police were called, and Norris allegedly resisted, so his little trip to the tax office landed him in jail. However, he did manage to earn a criminal trespassing and resisting arrest charge.
