Note On Windshield Stops Cop From Writing Ticket

A mid-adult caucasian male police officer stands in front of a car, writing a ticket for a moving violation.

A Wausau, Wisconsin police officer was about to write a parking ticket for a car that illegal parked overnight, but after reading a note on the windshield, he changed his mind and let the owner off with just a warning.

The handwritten note said, "Please take pity on me. I walked home... Safe choices." The cop was impressed by the owner's decision to not drive drunk and even wrote on the warning, "Pity granted." 

The resident posted a photo of his note and the warning he got, and the Wausau police department shared it on Facebook. That driver not only got out of a $5 ticket, but he also helped spread the word about the importance of not driving under the influence.
