Cribbs not pleased to receive parking ticket

J. Cribbs was not pleased to receive this parking ticket.

Posted by Josh Katzowitz


In this lockout season when players are saving their money (maybe) and taking part-time jobs, it pays to fight the man if you feel like you’re getting ripped off.

Browns WR Josh Cribbs might be taking it to a new level, though.

Last Friday in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Cribbs walked to his car in a metered parking space only to find a ticket underneath his windshield wiper for having an expired meter. The problem? Cribbs says his meter had 8 minutes remaining (as you can see by the photo above).

Wrote Cribbs on his Twitter account: “Police in cleveland heights just wrote me a ticket & my meter had time left wow..smh can u say not Guilty lol."

Although the ticket cost $15, Cribbs has decided to contest it where he’ll have to pay $50 for the right to appeal it. Even though he called the charge a “scam,” he’s going to buck the system anyway.

Wrote Cribbs: “I'm going to fight it 4everybody who gets a parking ticket b4 the meter expires & can't fight it bc of the court cost!!”

While this potential court case probably isn’t as important as the one winding its way through the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, this one actually might be more exciting to talk about.

Not to be the half-glass empty guy, but he could've just put a dime and nickel in and waited a minute to take the picture to make his So-called Justice like picture look real......just saying

This might be the meter maids and not law enforcement (cops) that wrote the ticket.  Those people can be worse then the cops and looking to mess with people.

This is what is wrong with law enforcement in this day and age.  Their job is supposed to be "to serve and protect", not to harass and annoy.  It is nothing but a business anymore.  They would rather write tickets like this or seatbelt tickets than try and catch real criminals because average citizens pay their fines.  Going after bad guys is not only more dangerous, but there is no money in it because the real criminals aren't gonna pay their fines.

The fact that it costs 50 dollars(most likely posted as a bond) to appeal any parkin ticket in the City of Cleveland is one of the reasons why meter maids can get away with stuff like this.  It is hard to believe that the police chief is saying an "Evil" samaritan put quarters into meters to prevent the city of Cleveland from ripping off its citizens. Why "Evil" instead of "Good"? Because it makes the police look bad, and that must surely be evil.
Who the heck wastes quarters to prevent people from getting 15 dollar tickets? 
Quit nickle and diming your regular citizens to get your money, and raise property taxes to offset.
I think in a city like this, I would want to move to South Beach as well.
