Man Given Jaywalking Ticket After Being Hit By Car

`A former secretary of the U.S. Commission on Fine Arts has gotten a $5 ticket for jaywalking even though, at the time, he was lying critically injured in the street after being hit by a car.

Police told The Washington Post that Charles Atherton, 73, was conscious when he was issued the ticket before being taken to the hospital Thursday night.

But witnesses report that Atherton was unresponsive and struggling to breathe.’
