A California parking enforcement officer issuing tickets walked up to a man video recording him Wednesday and snatched his camera, telling him to “get that camera out of my face.”

Nevada City parking enforcement officer Jack Ward then walked away with the phone as Tony Loro tried to take his phone back.

Loro said the camera turned off during the seizure, so the rest of the interaction was not captured on video, but he said he ended up with a three-inch laceration on his hand as he tried to grab his phone back.

“Go ahead, take a swing at me,” Ward told Loro, according to Loro’s detailed description of the incident, which he sent to police Wednesday and I’ve posted below.

The altercation drew the attention of a district attorney deputy and eventually Nevada City Police Chief Jim Wickham, who has been on the job about a month.

It all began when Loro inserted coins in the expired meters of cars that did not belong to him, which did not stop Ward from issuing those cars a citation anyway.
