(KMOV) -- News 4 is asking Missouri State Senator John Lamping of St. Louis if he's above the law. A photo showing Lamping's Dodge Challenger parked in a handicap space was posted on Twitter by the political weblog, Fired Up Missouri.
Lamping called the incident an honest mistake. He told News 4 it happened last week at a Jefferson City hotel after a long day at the legislature.
The senator said he got to the hotel around midnight and in the dark overlooked the markings on the pavement, but that the spaces weren't next to the door and didn't have signs. He promises it won't happen again.
