"SA Councilman Impersonated; Man Tries To Prevent Car From Being Towed"

If you are parked illegally, it's probably best not to impersonate someone the police might recognize.

From KSAT-12:

SAN ANTONIO -- Someone allegedly tried to use District 10 City Councilman Chip Haass' name to get out of a jam.

According to Haass, a man illegally parked his 2000 Audi in the 2000 block of Jefferson on Wednesday. When it was about to be towed away, the man told police he was Haass.

Police told Haass that the man said, "I'm a city councilman, please don't tow my car." ...

Despite the man's pleas, the car was still towed away.

I guess claiming to be the mayor would have been too obvious.
