Tom Hanks has embraced his new real-life role of parking-ticket narc.
The “Forrest Gump” actor on Saturday ratted out an apparent scofflaw in New York City by tweeting a picture of a car with several tickets crammed onto the windshield. Hollywood screenwriters should take note of his to-the-point message.
Manhattan is not an uninhabited island like the one where Hanks washed ashore in “Cast Away,” so word traveled fast. NYPD spokesman J. Peter Donald responded.
Cops located the car on the Upper East Side’s East 79th Street and Park Avenue, and discovered that the tickets had been paid.
“We checked the license plate and there are no outstanding summonses,” a police source told the New York Daily News. “He probably pays them online but leaves them on his windshield.”
