Cop not disciplined for pro football player's autograph
Determined Ray Rice didn't get special treatment and there was no quid pro quo for the autograph
OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore County police say they won't discipline an officer who got an autograph from Ravens running back Ray Rice after warning him about the tint on his vehicle's windshield.
Police spokesman Lt. Robert McCullough says investigators determined Rice didn't get special treatment Monday and there was no quid pro quo for the autograph.
Rice had posted a statement on Twitter that suggested he got out of a ticket in exchange for the autograph. He deleted the post and later said it had been poorly worded.
McCullough says the officer verbally warned Rice that the tint on his white Range Rover's windshield was darker than the law allows. It's not unusual for officers to issue warnings in such cases, allowing people to remove the tint and avoid a citation.
