Connecticut police arrest man who called to report his own parking violation

SHELTON, Conn. — Connecticut authorities say a 29-year-old man was so upset about the lack of parking enforcement in his town that he parked his car illegally in a handicapped space and called police more than a dozen times before officers arrived and arrested him.

Shelton police say they had to subdue Michael Andes with a stun gun Thursday morning after he screamed at officers that they weren't doing their job and became combative. He was charged with breach of peace and interfering with an officer and was given a parking ticket.

Authorities say Andes first called police at 2 a.m. and yelled at a dispatcher.

Andes posted $1,000 bail and is due in court Sept. 6. There's no phone listing for Andes and it's not clear if he has a lawyer.

Somewhere in this guy's idiocy there actually is a valid point. In cities around this nation people always complain about seeing cops go right past someone breaking the law without any notice. Of course voicing his opinion in a different venue would most likely have more effect.
