LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man standing on a ramp marked ‘no pedestrians' was arrested Wednesday night for suspicion of panhandling.  

According to an arrest slip, Travis Wilson, 43, was witnessed by police holding a sign asking for work. Wilson was standing on a limited access roadway which is the off-ramp for I-64 at Grinstead Drive. There is a clearly posted sign that says, "No pedestrians."

Upon arrest, police found a wad of cash in his left front pocket, which is consistent with someone panhandling.

Wilson was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.
