Facebook post leads to police ticket

A man got a police ticket after he posted a video on Facebook of his driving through a private area.

According to KKTV 11 News, Michael Dalton recorded a short video showing him cutting through a private parking lot that sits between his neighborhood and a shopping center.

After a week, KKTV 11 News reports Dalton was visited by a Woodland Park police officer at his house. The officer served him with a ticket for reckless driving and running a stop sign.

The officer said “You have a First Amendment right to post whatever you want, and can. But if you’re breaking the law and it’s in our jurisdiction, then we can do something about it,” KKTV reports.
