VALLEY FORGE, Pa. (CBS/AP) — A marathoner says he was fined $100 for running in Valley Forge National Historical Park during the government shutdown.
John Bell, a 56-year-old realtor, said he parked his car on Sunday in a remote parking lot, not one blocked by a barrier.
Bell, of Chadds Ford, has competed in a marathon on every continent of the world, but one of his favorite places to run is Valley Forge.
“From a safety standpoint, I like running down there, along with the scenery,” he says.
But on Sunday, Bells says there were two rangers waiting with their car lights flashing when he returned. They slapped him with the $100 citation.
