An Arkansas judge commemorated the death of Osama Bin Laden with a break for misdemeanor violators.

Judge Brad Karren of Rogers gave defendants a $51 break in fines and fees to mark the date, May 1—or 5-1, the Associated Press reports. About 100 people got the reductions.

Karren said he wanted people to remember the day that the United States had a victory against terrorism.
