Why did this police officer give HIMSELF a ticket?

A policeman in the US has shown his true dedication to the law by giving himself a parking ticket after he found himself parked in a disabled spot! 

County Sheriff David Clarke, from Milwaukee, proved to the US that he is not above the law by fining himself Dh128 for parking in a disabled spot. 

In a statement he said, ‘I pulled up in front of the (Milwaukee) War Memorial, got out of my squad car and directed a Captain to move the vehicle and properly park it. That order was not followed."

But Sheriff Clarke didn't think the Dh128 fine was enough and donated a further Dh735 to an organisation supporting and working with disabled people. 

He added: ‘The rules are the same for my squad as any car except in an emergency or official business but not in a handicap area.’
