Goshen Police Officer Suspended for Parking in Handicapped Space

A photo of the officer's illegal parking job was posted on social media.

GOSHEN, Ind. -- If you park in a handicapped parking spot, you'll probably get in a bit of trouble--even if you're a police officer.

A Goshen police officer was suspended for one day after parking a police cruiser in a handicapped space this week.

The Goshen Police Department found out about the officer's illegal parking job after someone posted a photo on social media.

Goshen PD told ABC 57 in South Bend that it's "not acceptable" to park in a handicapped spot without a proper tag or plates. This includes police and other first responders, unless it's a "rare emergency." 

The name of the officer has not been released.
