Montreal Alouettes wide receiver Chad 'Ochocinco' Johnson has been in Montreal for a few weeks and is already admittedly in love with the city and its beautiful residents.

However, the former NFL star is having a bit of a parking problem, which may be interfering with his love affair.

Johnson is looking to the Mayor of Montreal for help after amassing 15 parking tickets totalling $780 in the last 15 days.

Johnson, who is quite adept at social media, tweeted the following to the mayor: “@DenisCoderre Denis, I love you but I’m having trouble with parking tickets, most of the parking signs are in French, I’ve had 15 tickets. Help.”

After a bit of a back-and-forth message, Coderre responded in a tweet: “@Ochocinco ok we will meet. Meantime we will give you a crash course to understand our parking signs so you don’t catch a ticket...again.”

Johnson said he’ll be taking the metro to Alouettes practices until he gets a hang of the parking rules in Montreal.
