Sheriff David Clarke wrote up a ticket yesterday afternoon – to himself, after his squad car was seen parked in a handicapped-accessible spot outside of the Milwaukee County War Memorial, as first reported by WTMJ4.
According to the report, the station was alerted to the sheriff's parking snafu by several veterans visiting the War Memorial.
Sheriff Clarke later released a statement, noting that he had asked a captain to move the car earlier in the day but after leaving a Veterans Day event at the War Memorial, noticed it still in the handicapped-accessible spot. According to Clarke's statement, he ordered a ticket be written, and he paid the $35 fine, as well as a personal $200 donation to "an organization that works with the disabled."
According to the WTMJ4 report, Clarke has also put forward an investigation into the disobeyed order that led to the ticket.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
