Man Accused of Taking Up One Too Many Parking Spaces Is Acquitted of Criminal Threats

Believe it or not, a San Francisco jury sympathized with a man who was pissing off his neighbor for taking up too many parking spaces, an event that kicked off years of back-and-forth disputes.

According to the Public Defender's Office, the jury deliberated for less than an hour before concluding that 64-year-old William Kaiser was not guilty of criminal threats against his neighbor.

Kaiser was known as the “Car Guy” because he collected vintage cars, many of which he parked on the street. But his troubles began two years ago when one of this neighbors, who was also his friend of 13 years, started complaining about how the vintage cars were taking up too many parking spaces on the street.
