The Most Expensive Chicago Parking Ticket Ever: $1.5 Million
Ya shoulda just paid the ticket Officer Friendly.
Of course hindsight is 20/20. But that’s what the irate Chicago cop who was ticketed by a Traffic Management Authority supervisor two years ago should have done.
Instead, he and his three cop buddies arrested the TMA and injured her when they put her in handcuffs.
Because on Friday, the four were found to have violated the plaintiff’s civil rights. Now Jacqueline Fegan is walking away with $1.5 million of taxpayer money because one cop cried about having to pay a $50 parking ticket.
$50 + $1.99 for a pacifier vs. $1.5 million. Hmmmm.
I’ll take the $50 any day.
