NORTH ENID, Okla. -- (KFOR) -- Kali Wood was driving to her home in North Enid from getting a spray tan when she saw her friend, Gary Duckworth, out mowing his yard.
She pulled over to the side of the road to talk to him.
She’d been there for about 10 minutes when a North Enid police officer pulled up in front of her with his lights on and informed her she was in a no parking zone.
There are signs along Colorado that say "No parking this side of the road."
Duckworth said he tried to explain to the officer Wood’s car wasn’t even in park.
It was still running with her foot on the brake.
“I mean, her car’s running. We’re just talking,” you can hear Duckworth say on the officer’s point of view camera.
“You can come to court and tell the judge,” the officer replies.
The officer ends up writing Wood a $25 ticket.
“What’s the court date?” you hear Duckworth ask on the police cam.
“I’ll explain it to her. She’s the one getting a ticket,” says the officer.
“You can’t even answer my question?” Duckworth asks.
“Sir, I owe you nothing. You’ve been nothing but rude to me since I got here,” said the officer.
Duckworth continued to argue with the officer, and the situation escalated.
