Lodi Police Chief Orders Wife Be Ticketed For Double Parking

LODI, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New Jersey police chief says no one is above the law — not even his wife.

Lodi Police Chief Vincent Caruso ordered an officer to ticket his wife after she double parked while dropping off their 5-year-old son at school.

Caruso said he didn’t want her to get any special treatment because of who she is.

The chief paid the $54 ticket.

It’s not the first time for Paula Caruso. The chief ordered another officer to ticket her two years ago after she forgot to move their vehicle for street cleaning.

The chief said he loves his wife and that she is very busy driving their four sons around.

    One cannot make an intelligent comment unless one knows the side streets in Lodi are very narrow . Has nothing to do with brown nosing, or ancestry or a publicity stunt, it is about people obeying laws . When people violate parking laws in NYC, or, any other town , I believe parking tickets are issued .
