WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU)  A Wausau municipal judge upheld a fine against a food vendor accused of dumping water and food scraps into the city sewer. The owner of the Yo Chubby Gringo food cart says the city was unfairly targeting him as part of a broader issue involving street vendors who sell food downtown.

City Parks Director Ken Krueger says he saw J W Van Wagner dump water and food scraps down the sewer near the 400-block last August. He was then issued a citation by police.

After yesterday's court ruling, the $177 fine must be paid in 60 days.

You Chubby Gringo is a licensed food vendor in Wausau. Their license comes up for renewal this spring.
