"I'm happy to comply with rules, but I need to be aware of them to be able to comply," Bailey Scarborough of Lubbock told Lubbock's First News with Tom and Laura. Scarborough and her friend Brian Ratcliffe of Dumas, Texas received a ticket back in February for hanging a hammock at Tech Terrace.

On Sunday afternoon (Feb. 15), the pair decided to go to Tech Terrace park where Scarborough hung her hammock. Scarborough noted there were probably about a dozen people with about seven different hammocks already at the park.

She stated that approximately 30 minutes later, three police squad cars arrived at the park. An officer approached her and her boyfriend. The officer issued Ratcliffe a citation even though the hammock belonged to Scarborough.

Ironically, Scarborough's family owns Tom's Tree Place, her uncle is on the Parks Board and she is an Environmental Engineering Graduate student at Texas Tech University.

Scarborough stated she wants to make citizens aware of the ordinance and that they can't hammock in their park.

"I don't agree with the ordinance, but more than that I don't agree with not warning your citizens about ordinances," she said.
