Tom Hanks is on the beat in New York City, using Twitter to alert police to a car with a slew of tickets on its windshield.
Turns out the tickets were paid.
The New York Police Department responded when the Academy Award-winning star of "Philadelphia," ''Forrest Gump" and "Sully" on Saturday tweeted: "Sir? Move. Your. Car! Hanx." He also posted a picture of the burgundy sedan with at least a half dozen tickets bulging from beneath windshield wipers at East 79th Street and Park Avenue.
The Justice Department is looking to use its control over coveted grant money to nudge so-called sanctuary cities into greater cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities, despite a judge's ruling that blocked President Donald Trump's effort to cut off millions to such communities.
A judge in April struck down Trump's executive order on the matter, saying the president has no authority to attach new conditions of his own to grants that were approved by Congress.
But in a memo issued Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Justice Department still can put more stringent conditions on the money it doles out and "may seek to tailor grants to promote a lawful system of immigration."

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who says he's been appointed an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security, has denied he plagiarized content in his master's thesis on homeland security, while the Naval Postgraduate School confirmed Sunday that it's reviewing the allegations.
The denial followed a CNN report Saturday saying Clarke, who built a following among conservatives with his provocative social media presence and strong support of President Donald Trump, failed to properly attribute his sources at least 47 times in his 2013 thesis, titled "Making U.S. security and privacy rights compatible."
Some things aren't adding up in President Donald Trump's account of the investigation into his campaign's relationship with Russians, an inquiry he says "I respect" yet considers a "witch hunt."
The matter vastly overshadowed anything else said and done by the administration over the past week. Yet in the nooks and crannies of Trump's rhetoric and that of his aides, statements on jobs, foreign policy and more also call for a second look.
As Iran's chief nuclear envoy, Hassan Rouhani earned the nickname "diplomat sheikh" when negotiators in 2004 reached a deal that saw the Islamic Republic halt all its enrichment of uranium.
Over 10 years later, it would be Rouhani as president who would strike a bargain with world powers to again limit Iran's atomic program, showing once more the cleric's pragmatism in slowly engaging with the West.
But Iran's contested nuclear program represents only one part of the identity of the 68 year old, who decisively won a second term on Saturday.
A 25-year-old woman was able to save a man's life because she was trained in CPR.
Tiara Gose, 25, is a law student who works part-time at a recreational center, Thompson Park, in Bellflower, California. She had just started her shift when a coworker told her a man had passed out.
The 61-year-old man who had been playing ping pong was unconscious and turning blue, she said. She didn't think twice about trying to rescue him with CPR.
"I know that I did something that everyone sees as a courageous act, but to me it was something that everyone would do," she said. "If you had a chance to save someone’s life, you would."
Remember the Republican health care bill?
Washington is fixated on President Donald Trump's firing of FBI chief James Comey and burgeoning investigations into possible connections between Trump's presidential campaign and Russia.
But in closed-door meetings, Senate Republicans are trying to write legislation dismantling President Barack Obama's health care law. They would substitute their own tax credits, ease coverage requirements and cut the federal-state Medicaid program for the poor and disabled that Obama enlarged.
While other Harvard University students were writing papers for their senior theses, Obasi Shaw was busy rapping his.
Shaw is the first student in Harvard's history to submit a rap album as a senior thesis in the English Department, the university said. The album, called "Liminal Minds," has earned the equivalent of an A-minus grade, good enough to guarantee that Shaw will graduate with honors next week.
Count Shaw among those most surprised by the success.
"I never thought it would be accepted by Harvard," said Shaw, a 20-year-old from Stone Mountain, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta.
Eight people suffered non-life-threatening injuries Saturday when a Boeing 737 passenger jet collided with an airport utility truck on a taxiway at Los Angeles International Airport, authorities said.
The collision happened just before 2:30 p.m. on the taxiway near Runway 25 Right shortly after Aeromexico Flight 642 from Mexico City landed, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
A black Texas congressman said Saturday that he's been threatened with lynching by callers infuriated over him seeking impeachment of President Donald Trump.
U.S. Rep. Al Green held a town hall meeting and played recordings of several threatening voicemails left at his offices in Houston and Washington, the Houston Chronicle reports .
The seven-term Democrat told the crowd of about 100 people that he won't be deterred.
Aaron Hernandez requested to live with certain cellmates and apparently addressed rumors dating back to 2015 in seven handwritten letters from the Department of Correction obtained by NBC Boston.
The documents were received after NBC Boston filed a public records request. The letters to correction officers are written requests by Hernandez to be moved to a different cell block with requests to bunk with specific inmates.
“I am writing this letter so there is no confusions about me because I have been hearing things of being considered something which is false, so I wanted to clear all that,” he wrote.

Pippa Middleton, radiant in a custom-made wedding gown, married a wealthy financier Saturday as two likely future British kings and other members of the royal family, including her sister, looked on.
In what was seen by many as the society wedding of the year, Middleton and hedge fund manager James Matthews said their vows in a ceremony at St. Mark's Church in Englefield, west of London. Before the wedding, a crowd of well-wishers and reporters gathered outside the church grounds, hoping for a glimpse.
The wedding party included Prince George, a 3-year-old page boy, and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte, a bridesmaid. Both are the children of the Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa's sister.
