Huskers overrule parking penalty against governor’s vehicle

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The University of Nebraska’s parking referees have thrown a flag after spotting Gov. Pete Ricketts’ official vehicle illegally parked outside the Cornhuskers’ football practice facility.

But after further review, the penalty called Wednesday for parking in a reserved area was overturned, and the ticket was withdrawn.

A Ricketts spokesman says university officials told the Nebraska State Patrol to park in the spot where the vehicle was ticketed and withdrew the citation “after that was made clear.”

University spokeswoman Leslie Reed says the ticket was issued due to a miscommunication and was promptly invalidated.

Ricketts was on campus to watch the team practice before their season opener against South Alabama on Aug. 31.
