. . .On May 18, [meter maid] Fegan was driving on Superior near Michigan when four police officers waved her down, she said. [police officer] Reid told her a minivan parked at 700 N. Michigan had been ticketed, even though it belonged to an officer who was there on police business, she said.
The minivan did not have police markings or license plates and was parked illegally, she said.
Reid demanded that she void the ticket, she said. When Fegan told him she did not have the authority to do so, he grew "very irate," she said.
When Fegan tried to cross the street, Reid and the other officers arrested her for jaywalking. They removed a suspect who was already in the police wagon and "picked me up and threw me" in the back, handcuffed, Fegan said. She suffered a "severe sprain" of her right arm as a result, she said.
Fegan is 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. A police source described Reid as tall. . .
My hatred for meter maids is equal to my hatred for police who abuse their authority, so I don't know who to root for! So confused!
I find it amusing that "A police source described Reid as tall" - wow that's an objective, useful piece of information. What if the police source is only two feet tall?
