Don’t spit into the wind or pull on super PAPD cop’s cape

“Driver says he was spit upon in parking spat” as reported Daily Post today.

Finding parking in Palo Alto can be stressful, so much so that one man was cited for misdemeanor battery after allegedly spitting on a driver who blocked two parking spaces.

Police said psychiatrist Peter Lucy, 62 of Los Altos, became upset when a driver blocked two parking spaces with his car on 300 block of California Ave. at 9:25 a.m. Friday, essentially taking up two spaces.

Police cited Lucy for misdemeanor battery after the person he allegedly spat on called police to say he was putting Lucy on citizen’s arrest.

When contacted by the Post, Lucy said he didn’t assault anyone. however, he did not wish to comment on the incident further.
