The official in charge of controlling litter in Youngstown is accused of littering up his own property.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

George Finnerty was in court Thursday on a citation from the Mahoning County Sheriff's Department, which took pictures of cardboard boxes, broken furniture, tires and other trash around Finnerty's home.

The litter control coordinator says he's already taken care of many of the problems and says he wishes the sheriff's department had first given him a warning.

He also says the ticket is part of a long-running conflict, but he's not going into specifics.

The judge ordered Finnerty to return to court next month to show the junk has been cleaned up.
