Parking warden misses golden chance to book El-Hadji Diouf (video)

Public enemy number-one, Blackburn’s El-Hadji-Diouf, narrowly escaped a parking fine on Monday after the parking warden was unable to issue the foul-mouthed forward with a ticket as her computer wasn’t working.

According to local reports, Diouf was out feasting on pizza in Manchester city centre after having parked his ostentatious massive gold Cadillac Escalade in a loading bay. A traffic warden spotted the offence, but she was unable to issue a £70 fine because her hand-held computer was not working (see picture).

Having escaped without a penalty, Diouf and his chums were later seen laughing and smiling as he drove off.

An eagle-eyed bystander was on the scene at the time of the incident, and happily recorded the events on his hand-held video recorder.
