In the eyes of the law, crime must pay… Even if the criminal is a work of art.

Plenty suffer for their craft, but Austrian sculpture artist Erwin Wurm might have to have to suffer through traffic court for his. Wurm's bent, red Mercedes-Benz food truck installation in Karlsruhe, Germany, got slapped with a parking ticket by local officials. Whether the parking ticket is actionable or not is unclear, but it raises the stakes on the already-upended piece.
