SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - A Clark County Deputy who was parked in a handicap parking space will face administrative action following a departmental investigation.
According to a statement from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, the deputy pulled into the spot while conducting a business related phone call.
The parking space was only marked with paint on the pavement and not with an elevated sign. Ohio law requires an elevated sign to be present in order to be an officially designated handicap parking spot.
As a result of the findings, the sheriff’s office and the prosecutor’s office determined a citation could not be legally issued to the deputy.
“However, the Clark County Sheriff Office recognizes that the careless actions of the deputy may have caused a significant inconvenience for a person in need of a special parking location,” the statement reads, “Therefore, the deputy will receive appropriate administrative discipline.”
