GRAVELAND, Fla. – A police chief in Florida decided to put his money where his mouth is after a resident took a picture of him violating a local ordinance.
On Tuesday, a man posted a picture of Chief Tennyson’s vehicle blocking a sidewalk.
The post claims the chief of police regularly fines other drivers who park their vehicles in their own driveway if they block a sidewalk.
One day later, the Groveland Police Department responded to the picture and post.
“In response to a previous social media post about the Chief of Police parking on a sidewalk let it be known he was made aware of the violation and he issued himself a parking ticket,” the police department wrote on Facebook. “Chief Tennyson has since paid for the violation. Attached is a copy of the receipt and the Chiefs response and email to the City Manager and City Council.”
