Annie James didn't like the way a police officer parked in front of her apartment complex so she decided to write him a parking ticket. According to James, the Baytown police officer parked in the fire lane and on the curb near the entrance of the Bay Oaks apartments. When officer Tommy King returned to his patrol car he found a handwritten $10 parking ticket attached to his windshield.
"He was parked on the side of the building. It said it was a fire lane all the way around," Annie James told KPRC.
James wrote in the ticket that the officer had to pay a $10 fine to the apartment complex manager. Instead of paying the fine, the officer had something else in mind. King gave James a $40 Toys "R" Us gift card.
"I came to get my car and I saw a piece of paper on my windshield. I took it off, read it and started laughing," Officer Tommy King said about the incident.
