CLEVELAND, OHIO- A man who held a sign warning drivers of a DUI checkpoint claims his free speech rights were violated when he was cited by police.

Douglas Odolecki held a sign that said: "Check point ahead! Turn now!" Police say the city attorney says the part of the sign telling drivers to turn is illegal.

Odolecki claims police sometimes abuse their authority and fighting the citation is a just cause.

He was arrested before for a similar sign two years ago when police found he had a pocket-knife.

He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and got community service in that case.
