Santa Monica Police and KTLA at Odds over Parking Tickets Given During Live Broadcast
Hell hath no fury like a reporter scorned! Police in Santa Monica may be admitting to erroneous parking tickets issued to residents last week, but they are making no apologies for writing $200 worth of tickets to KTLA during a live broadcast yesterday morning.
The station's energetic Gayle Anderson was conducting an interview about "Best Road Trip Cars" in a beach parking lot when she casually worked in a line about receiving a citation as a cameraman panned to an officer writing ticket. "And after you pay your Santa Monica parking ticket, where do you go in this Porsche Panamera?" she asked. "We've paid for parking, I have receipts, but that's okay, we'll figure it out, friendly Santa Monica," Anderson snarked.
