Nobody likes filling out forms, but paperwork is part of the job if you work for the police. However, one officer in West Yorkshire has a little more reason to dislike pencil-pushing than others.

According to a Tweet from the West Yorkshire Police's Roads Policing Unit (RPU), the officer in question managed a bit of a bureaucratic mix-up when issuing a fine. Instead of citing the offending vehicle, he instead managed to fine himself, for possessing an untaxed vehicle.
