XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) - Are some law enforcement living above the law?
That's the question after a 2 NEWS viewer snaps a photo of a sheriff's deputy parked in a handicap spot in Xenia.
And, this isn't the first time something like this has happened here in the Miami Valley.
Earlier this month, A Clark County Sheriff's Deputy was also caught in a handicap parking spot.
The most recent picture was taken earlier this week outside of the Wendy's restaurant on West Man Street in Xenia.
After looking at the picture, the Greene County Sheriff's Office tells me this is not one of its cruisers.
Officials say they only have one car of this kind on the road and it has several different features from lights to markings.
They tell 2 NEWS this cruiser has to be from a different sheriff's office, but the picture is too blurry to read the county number on the license plate.
People we talked to, say it doesn't matter where it's from.
"I feel like it's kind of messed up. You know, if there's any handicapped people who want to park there, they can't and then they have to walk further and maybe they can't walk. It just seems like it would end up being a major inconvenience for people," comments Josh Storms.
"They always have parking spots open. So, why would take up that one, when there's a bunch of other ones in this whole entire area where he could've parked?" asks Stephen Richmond-Bey.
Some people, we showed this picture to, say there shouldn't be a double standard for law enforcement.
"Not only are cops supposed to be role models but obviously they're supposed to be a law. If that same cop seen us doing it, what would they do? You know, they would give us a ticket," comments Chris Barron.
In the similar incident earlier this month in Clark County, officials tell us the deputy involved was disciplined but didn't receive a ticket. That's because, while there was a handicap logo painted on the pavement, there was no handicap sign marking the spot which is required by law.
That is also the case with this parking spot in Greene County.

Forget the slippery roads and inches of snow on the ground, it's the perfect time to propose marriage. At least that is how Levi Minor felt Friday night.
Snowfall reports vary across the Miami Valley as the storm continues to produce heavy snow, making it hard for drivers to see in some cases.
