A Colorado Deputy ticketed an Army National Guard blackhawk helicopter that was parked on a road while helping to rescue stranded victims of the Colorado flood.

Now, before you get all bent out of shape about how horrible that is, realize that is was just a good-natured little prank to lighten the mood in lieu of all the destruction.

Here is what Sheriff Justin Smith said about the ticket:

According to Business Insider, the chopper was ticketed with a $150-dollar fine for 'facing the wrong way' and 'parking in a no parking zone,' but there was nothing filled out for a court date of section codes or violations, hence indicating it was nothing more than a little practical joke.

This sounds like something I would do.
