A driver apparently furious over a parking ticket confronted a Hoboken Parking Utility officer last week outside City Hall and pelted her with poop, according to the Star Ledger.
Around 9:18 p.m. on Sept. 11, the driver, a 39-year-old woman, reportedly chased down the parking officer as she was trying to get into her boyfriend’s car at First and Bloomfield. A witnesses call to 9/11 described two women fighting, surrounded by a crowd of onlookers.
The parking officer told cops that the woman was mad about a ticket she had gotten earlier, and prevented her from closing the door of her boyfriend’s car as she tried to leave. She told police when she threatened to call authorities, the irate woman threw feces in her face, sparking the fight. The woman later admitted to police that it was dog poop she had scooped up from the ground with a cup.
The attacker told cops she flung the feces because she felt discriminated for being Latina.
The HPU officer was treated at an area hospital for possible fecal contamination.
