SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Have you ever wanted to give a city parking control officer a piece of your mind? As tempting as that is, it’s best to keep your cool, as one man found out over the weekend.
The incident happened Sunday around 6 p.m. at 24th Avenue and 24th Street in Sacramento. Jake Thomas, 24, was apparently so angry with the parking ticket he received he allegedly became “verbally aggressive” toward the officer, assaulted him, threw the ticket at the officer and wouldn’t let the officer leave, according to Sacramento police spokeswoman Officer Michele Gigante.
The agent called police officers who came to the scene and arrested the man on charges of assault, delaying and obstructing an officer in their duties, and violating probation.
