Sheriff’s Deputy Parks In Handicapped Spot

(Memphis) A WREG viewer emailed us a photo he snapped at an area shopping center.

The viewer was surprised when he saw a Shelby County Sheriff’s Office car parked in a handicapped spot.

He snapped a photo and said eventually a deputy, “Came out in uniform with bag in hand.”

This happened Wednesday afternoon at the Dick’s Sporting Goods in the Hickory Hill area.

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told us they are aware of the situation, they are looking into it, and it shouldn’t have happened.

Deborah Cunningham with the Memphis Center for independent Living said the deputy should know better than anyone else, and he should get slapped with a fine and ticket like everybody else.

“It is kind of pathetic. Why would he do that?” said Cunningham.

It’s not clear what will happen with the deputy involved.
