Man tells officer ‘write me a ticket’

Charles Barbarotta, 28, 100 block Grove St., was stopped by Huron police at about 2:30 a.m. at the Huron River bridge on U.S. 6, after the vehicle he was riding in made an improper turn, according to a Huron police report.

Barbarotta was cooperative during the stop, but he insisted police profiled him, the report said. The officer issued Barbotta’s friend a warning for the traffic violation, but Barbarotta continued to be uncooperative, the report said.

As the officer was walking toward the car, Barbarotta threw a cigarette out his window and refused to pick it up. Barbarotta continued to refuse to pick up the cigarette, and he told the officer to “write me a ticket,” the report said.

The officer obliged. Barbarotta then said he would not be paying for the ticket, nor would he show up to court for it, according to the report.
