Duckworth has expressed his disdain for the way the situation was handled. “It really angered me to feel like that I can’t even be out mowing my own front yard and, when a neighbor drives by and honks, that I can’t step out and speak to them without feeling that I’m getting harassed by the police,” Duckworth said.

Wood has expressed that she would have gladly moved the car if the officer had started with an initial warning, however, she will still pay for the $25 ticket.
