(WASHINGTON TIMES) A Michigan man is outraged after he was ticketed for heating up his car in his own driveway and then told by the police chief to “drop dead” after he complained to local media.

Taylor Trupiano, who posts on Facebook under the name Nick Taylor, posted a photo of the $128 ticket last week, which he found on his windshield after leaving his car running and unattended in his driveway in Roseville.

“Let’s all take a moment to thank officer dips—t K. Keary for wasting the taxpayer’s money and giving me a ticket for warming up my car in my own damn driveway,” Mr. Trupiano wrote, received more than 13,000 shares.
