EXCLUSIVE Man Threatened With $2,500 Fine For Being at Park

Entering Richardson Park can be a costly a mistake!

After Arizona was placed under lockdown, town manager Ronald Robinson made the decision to shut down the local playground — even locking the gates.

One man who hopped the fence to play basketball this morning told the Orange Street News that after about ten minutes of shooting by himself on the completely empty court, a town worker pulled up and threatened that he could be fined $2500.

“I saw it was locked and figured it was to keep groups of kids gathering – so I hopped the fence to shoot some foul shots. A worker came up to me and told me if I had to leave or pay a $2,500 fine,” the man told the OSN.

The man, who asked that his name not be used, told the OSN that while at first he was annoyed that he couldn’t play basketball, he respects that the town is trying to do the right thing.

“I understand the need to be safe and that the town is working hard to keep the coronavirus out of Patagonia. I just look forward to being able to play basketball again when the courts open back up,” he told the OSN.

Businesses in Patagonia has come to a virtual standstill. The Hummingbird Sanctuary, and the Nature conservancy have also been shut down because of the coronavirus.
