Washington: US Secretary of State John Kerry has been fined a penalty of USD 50 by the Boston City officials for not removing snow dumped on the side street in front of his house which was formed due to the massive snowstorm this week.

The city officials yesterday slapped Kerry with a USD 50 fine for failing to clear the snow-clogged sidewalk on the Pinckney Street side of his Beacon Hill mansion, The Boston Globe reported.

Kerry's spokesperson Glen Johnson said the Secretary of State would promptly pay the fine.

"Diplomats -- they're just like us. Secretary Kerry was working overseas while the blizzard packed a wallop back home," Johnson was quoted as saying.

The Secretary of State was not at the Boston home when the massive snowstorm hit the city. He was in Saudi Arabia along with President Barack Obama to express condolences over the death of the King and meeting the new King.

"It was a very public rebuke of one of the city's most famous dwellers," the daily reported.
