A Texas teenager saw a police car illegally parked in her neighborhood and wound up with a reward for keeping a cop in line.
14 year old Annie James issued a handwritten $10 ticket to Officer Tommy King, whose patrol car was parked in a fire zone of her apartment complex.
“I came to my car and I saw a piece of paper on my windshield,” King said. “I took it off and opened it and read it and I started laughing immediately.”
The ticket informed King he needed to pay $10 to the manager of the apartment complex.
“I thought it was neat that she made that for $10 but not to herself,” King said.
Not only did the officer pay the fine, he gave Annie a $40 gift card to Toys R Us.
“Turns out we’re both from Alabama and end up in Texas,” King said. “It’s interesting … I made a friend. A lesson would be not to be shy or afraid of law enforcement. We’re here to help.”
