Bollingbrook, IL (WGN) – A woman’s comments on Facebook turn into a legal battle with the Will County forest preserve.

The woman from Bolingbrook received a $50 ticket in the mail last week accusing her of using a dog park without a permit.

A forest preserve officer sent the ticket after interpreting a comment on Facebook to mean the woman had been using the dog park without a permit.

The woman says that’s untrue.

District officials now say the ticket will be rescinded and they will apologize to the woman.
