JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The lawyer for Devonte Shipman has filed a motion to have his jaywalking ticket dismissed, saying the intersection where he got the ticket is confusing to pedestrians.
Shipman was given two citations in June during a confrontation with Jacksonville sheriff's Officer J.S. Bolen that Shipman recorded on his cellphone.
Shipman said he believes he was racially profiled. One of the tickets, which was for not having a valid driver's license, was voided.
Shipman’s lawyer said the traffic signal and the pedestrian control signal at the intersection are not synchronized.
If Shipman’s citation is upheld, it would be a $65 fine.
The next hearing is Oct. 19.
Bolen’s actions that day are being investigated by JSO Internal Affairs.
