NC congressman too rushed to find airport parking
CHARLOTTE — A North Carolina congressman dashing to catch a plane dumped his SUV at the end of a row of properly parked cars at Charlotte’s airport.
The Gaston Gazette reports Wednesday that Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry parked his Ford Explorer straddling a curb in a parking lot at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport on Sunday.
The front tires were on the curb. The back tires were in the driving area of the parking lot, one resting atop a yellow speed bump.
McHenry spokesman Brock McCleary said the congressman was running late and couldn’t find a parking spot. He says McHenry made a mistake by not parking properly, and the car has been moved.
McHenry is serving his third term in the U.S. House.
