private portland citizen issues parking ticket to cop

from raw replay: An attorney has filed an illegal parking complaint against a Portland police officer. Eric Bryant says he was sitting at a restaurant in the trendy Northwest part of town when Officer Chad Stensgaard parked his patrol car next to aNo Parkingsign and walked inside to wait for his food.

Bryant told the Portland Mercury, an alternative weekly newspaper, that Stensgaard acknowledged the no parking sign when asked about it, but then just watched a basketball game on TV until his food was ready. Bryant says he looked up the law and then filed a complaint as a private citizen, alleging violations with fines totaling $540.
