(WJZ) They fought to save a life, and now they say theyll fight the fine. It all revolves around the rescue of a deer trapped in icy water Thursday night. Alex DeMetrick reports that good deed was rewarded with tickets. Strangers banded together to pull a deer out of the freezing water of the Patapsco River on Thursday night. We seen the deer going under, said Khalil Abusakran. It couldnt maintain. It was starting to freeze, and it was really getting bad. Abusakran brought a raft, and Jim Hart joined him. We had oars and shovels to break the ice, for the deer to get out, Abusakran said. But in the excited aftermath of the rescue, a natural resources police officer on the scene wrote both men a ticket. And he didnt say anything, Jim Hart said. We went in and out of the water numerous times. He didnt stop us at all. They say they were ticketed for not wearing life vests, although both are over the age for mandatory use of flotation devices. No, we didnt have vests on, but were not 16 years old, Abusakran said. There were personal floating devices on the boat. The ticket itself doesnt check off any specific violation, just a $90 fine. Theyll fight it in court, as they fought for the deer. The two men ticketed say they will fight the citations at the court hearing in Annapolis set for Feb. 18.
