I looked into the dictionary for words similar to reprimand in this expression,
I was reprimanded by the cops for reckless driving.
I checked on the web for reprimand and found lots of results, but it seems like a formal word to me(I can be wrong about this). What other words can I use for this?
Edit Ok, I am sorry for the confusion,I dont really care about fine, what I wanted to ask was informal word along the line of scolding/rebkuing.
