A vehicle was reported in front of a residence on Calhoun Avenue causing a road hazard. Police found a gray Mercury Grand Marquis bearing a  fake TN tag. Upon running the VIN of the vehicle, police discovered the vehicle was not stolen and is also not registered to the address where it was parked. The vehicle appeared to have damage to the front right shock, causing the wheel to touch the frame. The reporting person said the vehicle has been in front of the house for approximately four hours. It appears the owner of the vehicle attempted to park as far off the roadway as possible, not placing the vehicle in the yard of the above address. Due to the narrow two-way road, vehicles are having to alter their travel to get around the parked vehicle. A sticker was placed on the front window of the parked vehicle notifying the owner that it needs to be removed within 48 hours, due to it causing a hazard to other drivers on the road.
