Sin City is doing something good for its less fortunate citizens as well as those who've broken the law this month. The city of Las Vegas, Nevada will drop any parking ticket fines for those who make a donation to a local food bank.

Intoxicated man who his car behind leaves honest plea for the police

Most of us have been in this exact situation.

As we know, the police and parking enforcement officials aren't always the most accommodating when it comes to taking circumstances into account before writing a ticket. In fact, they're generally the absolute worst.

But that didn't dissuade one Wisconsin man from requesting leniency from the powers that be, when he left his car at a meter overnight after drinking too much.
