The Fresno Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1KoXBE5 ) that the 43-year-old was cited Monday for standing in the center median of busy traffic and approaching cars. Municipal code bans people from standing on medians without a permit.
At the time of his citation, the man had more than $1,800 in his pockets.
The man has been cited 11 times for similar violations since Jan. 1 and was cited more than 60 times for them in 2015.
Sgt. Todd Miller says they have offered the man city housing resources but he has refused them.
