    Default CO - Injured good Samaritan ticketed for jaywalking

    Okay, this just proves it is all about the money, So either the people who jaywalked were at fault of the person driving the pickup. The officer said the jaywalker caused the accident, so why write the guy driving the pickup a ticket

    DENVER A good Samaritan who helped push three people out of the path of a pickup truck before being struck and injured has gotten a strange rewarded for his good deed: A jaywalking ticket.
    Family members say 58-year-old Jim Moffett and another man were helping two elderly women cross a busy Denver street in a snowstorm when he was hit Friday night.
    Moffett suffered bleeding in the brain, broken bones, a dislocated shoulder and a possible ruptured spleen. He was in serious but stable condition Wednesday.
    The Colorado State Patrol issued the citation. Trooper Ryan Sullivan says that despite Moffett's intentions, jaywalking contributed to the accident.
    Another good Samaritan that night also was cited for jaywalking, while the pickup driver was cited with careless driving that led to injury. Sullivan says the two elderly women haven't been cited but the investigation is ongoing.

    This just in: Trooper Ryan Sullivan is a jack@$$.

    I see more LEO's break the laws then anyone else (especially J-Walking in big cities)... not pursuant to their duties.

    Bottom line: The trooper is correct, that he was J-walking, only to save the lives of two elderly people. I hope the judge throws out the ticket, and humiliates that tard of an officer in court.
