Fresno mayor ticketed for using a cell phone while driving

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Fresno police proved this week that nobody in town is immune from getting a traffic ticket -- not even the mayor.

A traffic officer ticketed Mayor Ashley Swearengin Tuesday for using her cell phone while driving. The mayor's office tells Action News she was looking at an e-mail while stopped at a red light at Blackstone and Herndon.

Police say she was polite and cooperative when the officer pulled her over, and she never tried to pull rank to get out of the ticket.
