He could get out of the ticket. Grass on the sidewalk? "Yes sir, but I wasn't done yet! I was going to clean all of that up, but I was stopped before I could finish!"
Beside that, if they were to have the city employees do their job, I bet you a big ol' glazed donut that the city workers get grass on the sidewalk, but then blows it off before they leave.....
I know who the real criminal was....the guy who stopped the law-abiding, tax-paying citizen...Throw his butt in jail!!
The criminal that stopped the guy, eats the big fat glazed donut, wears blue, and has hand cuffs. Yepp the local pd stopped him and arrested him. I wonder if they impounded the lawn tractor.
Can you imagine the look on the tow truck drivers face when he pulled up. See this riding lawn mower sitting there. Cop says take this thing to the impound. Heck I bet the hook was to big to even hook up to winch the tractor up on the roll back.
Oh and I found out from a friend that lives in this town. There is no ordinance against someone cutting the grass that is publicly owned.
From what my friend says, there has been complaints to the city from other nieghbors about the grass not being cut in this park. One parent even supposedly had a tick on there son after playing in this park.
So I can see how the citizen that took it upon himself to cut the grass is in the right. Ticks, Mosquitos, and other things love tall grass.
