If the car was legally parked as post #39 suggests, all the more reason to not try and squeeze by the officer. The situation could've been rectified by a discussion with the officer involving hotel staff. IMO this option would not have worked but option #2, FIGHTING THE TICKET IN COURT with affidavits from hotel staff would have been much better than what transpired. Even if he lost it's a better option. Instead he chose option #3, BEING A DOUCHE. LEO's are not god and that officer may have been in error but your not gonna win that way.
