Driving to court Tuesday was ticketed for causing a four car fender-bender on DC's George Washington Parkway.
He crashed into the vehicle in front of him triggering a chain reaction and junking his own car, which had to be towed from the scene..
Park Police Sgt. David Schlosser said Scalia received a ticket for following too closely, The Washington Post reported.
The justice can pay the $70 fine and $20 special assessment or contest the ticket in court, Schlosser said.
"He probably hasn't a clue how to contest a traffic ticket," Schlosser joked.
"It was a busy traffic area, It just happens."
