LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a parking ticket sent a man over the edge Monday afternoon, and he wound up in custody.
According to an arrest report, 54-year-old Edward L. Stiffler, Jr. walked into the Parking Authority (PARC) office at the corner of N. 3rd St. and W. Liberty St., and demanded that his parking ticket be destroyed.
Police say he was "irate" and would not allow the manager to explain how he could appeal the ticket. He allegedly refused to leave, despite the manager telling him to do so several times.
Stiffler, a white male, also accused the staff of being "racist."
Police were called to the office and told Stiffler to leave multiple times. That's when he allegedly told the manager that "you will get yours."
Stiffler was arrested and charged with terroristic threatening and criminal trespassing, according to the arrest report.
