POMPTON LAKES, N.J. - Tables have turned on a retired policeman who ticketed nearly 40 motorists during a borough-wide garage sale in Pompton Lakes.

The town is investigating whether George Gerhold's driveway is legal.

The municipal judge has dismissed four parking tickets and ordered three others to pay just $7.50 in court costs. An eighth was found guilty of idling next to a fire hydrant.

The judge says he's not convinced the driveway was properly installed.

Gerhold said he had a verbal agreement with the town's zoning officer when the driveway was built in the 1970s.

The 62-year-old had told the town he was frustrated with people parking in front of the 30-foot driveway during the July garage sale.

Mayor John Murrin tells The Record of Bergen County the Building Department will investigate.
