DeSoto Parish sheriff's deputy Clarence Davis was ticketed after someone posted on Facebook a photo of his cruiser parked in a handicapped zone.

Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle says he got wind of the photograph and notified patrol supervisor Lt. Donnie Barber, who cited Davis, a school resource officer, for parking in the restricted area. The fine is $300.

Davis' excuse was that parking wasn't available anywhere else. Arbuckle says he told Davis to park on the grass or in another parking lot and walk.
