Pr. George’s parking enforcement officer falsified tickets: authorities

Authorities say a Prince George’s County parking enforcement officer who feared he was in danger of losing his job falsified over $2,600 in parking tickets to impress his bosses.

Antoine Budd, a former employee of the county’s Revenue Authority, was charged Tuesday with multiple counts of perjury, forgery and counterfeiting.

Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela D. Alsobrooks, said the crimes came to light when the county began investigating a series of complaints lodged by residents over parking tickets in April and May.

Budd allegedly fabricated several $200 tickets for parking in a fire lane, one of the county’s most costly parking violations.

In a statement, Alsobrooks said a review of the tickets indicated that the tag numbers on the tickets did not match up with the actual vehicle make and model assigned to that tag number. Budd had also not taken pictures of the fire lane violations, which he was required to do.
