Man cited for warning drivers of checkpoint

Associated Press • Jun 20, 2014 at 1:20 PM

Douglas Odolecki, 43, held a sign Friday night in Parma that said: “Check point ahead! Turn now!”

He and his attorney are fighting the citation. Odolecki said police sometimes abuse their authority and he believes he’s fighting for a just cause.

A Parma police spokesman said city attorneys previously determined the part of the sign telling motorists to turn is illegal.

It’s not the first time Odolecki used the sign or got into trouble for it. Parma police arrested him in September 2012 for having a knife in his pocket while holding that sign.
