NJ Police Chief: Double-Parking Wife not Above Law

Posted Thursday, September 29, 2011 --- 12:29 p.m.

LODI, N.J. (AP) -- A New Jersey police chief says no one is above the law -- not even his wife.

Lodi Police Chief Vincent Caruso ordered an officer to ticket his wife after she double parked while dropping off their 5-year-old son at school.

Caruso told The Record newspaper (http://bit.ly/pksv9y ) he didn't want her to get any special treatment because of who she is.

The chief paid the $54 ticket.

It's not the first time for Paula Caruso. The chief ordered another officer to ticket her two years ago after she forgot to move their vehicle for street cleaning.

The chief told the newspaper he loves his wife and she's very busy driving their four sons around.

His wife couldn't be reached for comment Thursday. The Carusos' phone number is unlisted.
