Mayor Reed’s city vehicle gets booted

Yes, it happened.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed’s city transportation, a black GMC Denali, was booted Thursday while the mayor was at lunch.

Our friends at Everything Georgia (@GAFollowers) tweeted the pic of the executive vehicle in full booted state. The reason: the SUV was partially parked on a sidewalk.

City of Atlanta spokeswoman Anne Torres says members of the mayor’s security team parked the vehicle illegally. A private parking company booted the vehicle.

No ticket was issued, as the mayor’s official transportation is a police vehicle.

But Torres was clear about one thing:

“The mayor is going to make sure that it never happens again,” Torres wrote in response to an email inquiring about the boot incident.
