Parking authority employee fired for allegedly writing fake tickets

HOBOKEN – A 26-year-old Hoboken Parking Authority employee was fired this past week for allegedly issuing phony tickets, media outlets reported.
The accused is facing charges of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and tampering with public records or information, says the criminal complaint states.
The 26-year-old’s lawyer James Lisa did not return calls for comment. The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office did not return phone calls or emails to confirm the workers name.
This is not the first time a parking worker has faced charges.
In 2010, a 19-year-old employee was charged with theft by extortion and official misconduct after he allegedly wrote parking summons to a local delivery driver after he did not provide him with free sandwiches. However in 2012 the charges were dropped and he was reinstated. When asked if the employee still works for the city, city spokesperson Juan Melli said the city does not comment on personnel matters.
