Colorado Police Cites Blackhawk Helicopter Crew with Parking Ticket

I'm glad the Army National Guard and local police have a sense of humour. Otherwise, you couldn't make this stuff up. Enjoy!

Blackhawk Pilot Gets A Parking Ticket [PHOTO]

It turns out one Colorado cop has quite the sense of humor.

The Blackhawk was part of the Army National Guard units called in to help rescue stranded victims of the Colorado flood.

He had to park in the street, and he got ticketed for "facing the wrong way" and "parking in a no parking zone."

We found the image on a Reddit post titled: "Blackhawk pilot must land on a street in Colorado to help in a rescue from the floods; gets this amusing ticket from local police in return."

The Redditor also posted this image of the helicopter parked in the street and this image, as verification.

But don't worry, another commenter claiming police experience pointed out that there "no court date" and no "section codes for violations" — so it had to be a practical joke.

I'm sure the Blackhawk crew were having a long and tiring day. I hope this little gesture brought a smile to their faces.

Well, when you look at it on the whole, the police did call it right! He is clearly on the wrong side of the road, parked, and crossed the double line!

It would have been more hilarious if the police had to call in a tow!

As a joke, the Army NG should, because of sequestation, send the police a bill for the rescue...

They got off lightly if you ask me. They could easily have been done for speeding, or the vehicle not being road safe (no turn indicators or brake lights I'm guessing).

I guess the police couldn't figure out the year.
