Jaywalking Blind Man Case Dropped

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Cincinnati nailed its scofflaw meter-feeder, but it decided not to go after its jaywalking blind man. Jeff Friedlander, 48, was slapped with a jaywalking ticket after he was hit by a pickup truck and broke his tailbone last month. The police officer who ticketed him thought he stepped out of the crosswalk and caused the accident. But--less than a week after a woman was convicted of putting coins into other people’s expired parking meters--prosecutors dropped charges against Friedlander, saying there was no purpose in continuing with the case.
