Cambridge Police report a Lynn man who got a ticket for blocking the bike lane on Cambridge Street Saturday night made a show of ripping up the ticket and sprinkling it on the road as he drove away.
And now he also faces charges of littering from a motor vehicle and mutilating a parking ticket, police say.
Littering is obvious, but mutilating a parking ticket? It's all right there in Massachusetts General Law 90, Section 20D:
Whoever unlawfully tampers with or removes from a motor vehicle, or unlawfully changes, mutilates or destroys any notice affixed to such motor vehicle in accordance with section twenty A or twenty A1/2 shall be punished by a fine of not more than fifty dollars, or by imprisonment in jail for not more than one month, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
