Man shot, paralyzed after parking ticket dispute with constable
It is likely that a Pennsylvania man will never walk again after being shot by a Lehigh County constable who was attempting to serve a warrant for unpaid parking tickets.
The constable told NBC Philadelphia that he shot 38-year-old Kevin McCullers because he felt his life was in danger.
McCullers, who has several outstanding parking tickets, was shot as he attempting to back out of his driveway at 7:30am on Thursday morning. His girlfriend says McCullers was on his way to Dunkin Donuts.
“They never knocked on the door! No nothing! I just heard the gunshots! He pulled the car out of the garage and all I heard were gunshots,” said Hafeezah Muhammad, who added that McCullers was shot in the back and may never walk again. “For parking tickets?! It’s insane.”
Critics have argued over whether constables should even have the right to serve warrants over parking tickets.
This incident seems all types of wrong.
