Cop tickets MI man for warming up his auto in the driveway

"We have five to 10 cars stolen this way every winter", Roseville Police Chief James Berlin said.

"My auto takes forever to warm up", Trupiano said of the 1997 Chrysler Concorde.

For the record, on the day Taylor received his ticket, his area's high temperature was 19º Fahrenheit.
