Thu Oct 21 2010 Military Veteran Ticketed by SCPD for Spitting on Pacific Avenue
Four SCPD Officers Issue Citation to Woman for Spitting on Pacific Avenue On the night of October 20th, four Santa Cruz Police Department officers ticketed a woman for spitting on Pacific Avenue. No warning was given, and she was issued a ticket for nothing more than spitting.

Santa Cruz Municipal Code section 9.50.020, governing conduct on public property, monuments, and lawns, indicates that the ticket is unjustifiable and therefore should not have been issued. 9.50.02 (d) forbids the intentional discharge of a liquid substance. However, the municipal code states that a person is violating 9.50.02 "after having been notified by a police officer, public officer or downtown host that he or she is in violation of the prohibition." imc_photo.gifRead more and view photos
