You Probably Shouldn't Park There, Officer

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a teen steps into action and tickets an officer for a parking violation. CNN's Michaela Pereira reports.

Texas teen Annie James, 14, got upset when she spotted a patrol car parked on a curb that was designated as a "no parking" zone.

"He was parked on the side of the building," James said. "It said it was a fire lane all the way around."

Officer Tommy King patrols the apartment complex and keeps the criminals away. On this day, he parked his car next to the leasing office.

"I came to get my car and I saw a piece of paper on my windshield," King said. "I took it off, read it and started laughing."

James told King in her note that he was in violation for parking in a fire lane, parking on a curb and for backing into the spot.

The apartment complex requires all residents to pull "head first" into spots when parking, a rule that is clearly stated all over the property.

James asked the officer to pay a $10 fine to the manager.

"I thought it was neat that she made it for $10 but she didn't make it to herself," said King.
