The witness said that the truck had driven over the curb and the sidewalk to get into the lot. The officers spoke to the owner of the vehicle, who said he had only done it after he had seen a state vehicle do it first, and that he was doing work in the lot. It was later found that he was not actually doing work in the lot, and he was issued a receipt that he had to pay for upon leaving the lot.
