TUESDAY NIGHT'S STORY:

A well-known traffic ticket fixer in the Las Vegas valley has been arrested for battery after police say he got upset for receiving a parking citation.

Kirk D. Helmick. 57, is accused of hitting an elderly LVMPD volunteer multiple times with his car in March.

Locals might recognize the law offices from the TV commercials and advertising. 702 Traffic is known for its pink building and fighting traffic tickets.

The owner is now getting the wrong type of attention after being accused of hurting a volunteer who was just writing a traffic citation for wrongfully parking in a handicapped spot, the kind of thing the suspect actually fixes for a living.

8 News Now Reporter Brittany Edney has the exclusive story and spoke with the victim who says he was only attacked for doing his job.
