19-Year-Old From Wisconsin Arrested & Convicted For "Planking Spree" after Posting Pictures Of Himself Lying Across A Police Car On Facebook
_"A Manitowoc teen says police overreacted after citing him for "planking" on a squad car. 19-year-old Alexander Hart says he was just having fun. Police and a judge thought otherwise. He was convicted of disorderly conduct this week and fined $329. Planking is a nationwide craze that involves posting photos or videos of oneself lying face- down, straight as a board, in unusual places. A police captain told the Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter back in September that people can plank on their own parked vehicles but they shouldn't be doing it on other people's property. Capt. Scott Luchterhand says it "goes without saying" that officers don't want people planking on squad cars. A detective says Hart also planked near the courthouse, at a Walmart checkout counter and on a memorial to fallen officers. " - 6 News
