Minnesota Man Puts Dog Feces in Parking Ticket Payment to Protest Fine

AUSTIN, Minn. — "An Austin man who allegedly included dog feces along with his payment for a parking ticket has been charged with disorderly conduct.

The 22-year-old man was charged late last week. He's been summoned to appear in court June 15.

The man's vehicle was ticketed April 18 while it was parked in front of his residence. The complaint says he put an envelope containing his payment and dog feces in a drop box at the law enforcement center.

An Austin police department office employee smelled a rank odor as she gathered envelopes from the box. Opening them, she noticed one leaking a brown fluid, which got onto her hands and desk.

The next morning she awoke with a headache and vomited repeatedly. She was hospitalized for about two days with an undetermined illness."

Sweet mother of pearl. The good people of Austin should perhaps stop hiring minorities that leap at any opportunity to become stricken.

The dog crap was a wee overboard. Bull scat would have been preferrable and made a more succinct point.
