Police Chief writes himself a ticket

KEWASKUM, Wis. -- It's not usually news when a police officer writes a ticket -- unless it's the chief and he gives the ticket to himself.

Village of Kewaskum Police Chief Richard Knoebel said he was driving to work when he became distracted by a truck stopping on one side of the street.

He said he didn't see a school bus with its lights flashing and a stop sign out on the other side of the four-lane road.

The chief said he didn't know he had passed the stopped bus until it was too late.

When he realized what he had done, he issued himself a $235 ticket.

"When we get someone for not stopping for a flashing school bus we give them a citation. So I shouldn't be any different so I did," Knoebel said.

Not only did the chief have to pay a hefty fine, he gave himself a four-point penalty on his license.

Wow. I guess the residents of Kewaskum have officially lost hope for ever getting out of a ticket ever again.

That's pretty interesting how he's taking responsibility for his actions.

Big +1. I see cops doing triple digits past me all the time on the highway and stuff, no hurry at all, and they don't write themselves any tickets. F*ckers.

Re: Police Chief writes himself a ticket

Is police chief an elected position?

I've never known a police chief to be elected. Some places have sheriffs and elect those, but I've never known a place that has a Chief to be elected.
