Seven Days reports Sanders' Chevy Aveo was one of more than 500 cars ticketed during a weeklong street sweeping effort. About 400 vehicles got towed.

Records show his car got picked up and dropped off at the same place, which usually means the tow-truck driver hooked up the car before someone came out to claim it.
