SHELTON, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – A Shelton man is under arrest, after police say he called them roughly 15 times complaining about the lack of handicap parking space enforcement in the city.

Police say Michael Andes, 29, knowingly parked his vehicle in a handicap space on Howe Avenue without a permit early Thursday morning because he felt Shelton Police do not enforce parking laws. Andes then proceeded to make the series of phone calls to police, said authorities.

When police responded, Andes started yelling and screaming that officers aren’t doing their job, said authorities. Attempts to take Andes into custody failed and he refused to comply with the demands of officers, so they used a stun gun on him and placed him under arrest, said police.

Andes is charged with second-degree breach of peace and interfering with an officer. He’s free on $1,000 bond and due in Derby Superior Court September 6. Andes was also given a ticket for parking in a handicap space without a permit.
