Boulder County deputy writes prank ticket for National Guard helicopter for during Colorado floods

BOULDER, Colo. - The flood recovery effort didn't damper one Boulder County Sheriff's Office deputy's sense of humor.

The deputy wrote a prank parking ticket and left it under the windshield wiper of an Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter that had landed in the middle of a mountain roadway in Boulder County on Sept. 17.

The ticket cites the chopper pilot for parking in a no-parking zone and for facing the wrong way on the street.

The pictures were posted on the social sharing site Reddit, titled: "Blackhawk pilot must land on a street in Colorado to help in a rescue from the floods; gets this amusing ticket from local police in return."
